What is a fellowship?
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.
