What is a fellowship?

Friends A fellowship is an award for your past performance (grades, leadership, community service) which supports your current work or future promise.  

A fellowship often combines a scholarship (financial stipend) with a mentored experience (faculty advisors for research and creative projects, or supervisors for internships). Fellowships fund a specific purpose such as education, research, teaching, or public service. 

Are you interested in:

  • funding for study, travel, research?
  • engaging in service to positively impact your community?
  • developing lasting relationships with faculty members?
  • defining clear goals for your future?

Fellowships can help you:

  • find appropriate fellowships.
  • navigate the application process. 
  • write and revise applications. 
  • prepare for interviews. 
  • connect with faculty advisors. 
  • identify and take some of the steps in your future plans.
