Fellowships & Scholarships

Fellowships and scholarships provide exciting opportunities for students and alumnae to explore and deepen their academic, personal and professional interests in the U.S. and abroad. Fellowships serve as an investment in individuals, for opportunities like:

• studying a language
• conducting academic research
• completing a service project
• pursuing graduate study
• designing and executing an independent project

Most importantly, the application process is a valuable opportunity to learn about yourself and to grow in unexpected way. There are hundreds of opportunities available — and many are available for international students!

My professors and peers taught me that wherever you look, there is a question that needs to be explored and that can speak to your meaning in life. When you find one, you must believe you can answer it and realize that you may be surprised by what you discover.

Brief Introduction to Fellowships and Scholarships

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 alumnae of every nationality and at every stage of their careers. What might be the right fit for you?
