Students with an interest in global affairs from all majors are eligible and encouraged to apply to be Albright Fellows.

The Albright Institute is open to Wellesley College juniors and seniors, with priority given to juniors. Students apply during the spring semester for acceptance to the following January’s incoming class. Thus, at the time of their applications, students will generally be second semester sophomores or second semester juniors.

Students should be in good academic standing with a GPA of 3.0 and/or demonstrated potential for academic achievement.

  • Evidence of preparation for advanced studies in global affairs, including relevant coursework, experiential learning and other experiences;
