Resources to Help You Get Started

What are fellowships?
Fellowships and scholarships offer funding to support a range of purposeful activities, including undergraduate research, language study/other study abroad, self-designed projects, teaching and service, graduate or professional study, or even internships and professional placements. They can open doors for you to things you might not be able to pursue otherwise.

There are opportunities for students and graduates of every nationality and at every stage of their careers. What might be the right fit for you? The resources below will help you identify fellowships of interest to you and navigate the application process.

Worried about timing? Explore upcoming opportunities listed by application deadlines (click "Fellowship" to reveal search filters).

Smart and capable as you are, you don't have to go it alone! Check the Career Education events listings for an upcoming workshop, panel, or webinar, or drop in to chat at Fellowships Pop-Ups.

*Did you know that you can book a Fellowships advising appointment via Handshake to talk over application strategy, feedback on drafts, and/or interview prep? We look forward to talking with you, in person or via telephone or video chat!
