What Are Fellowships?
Fellowships support the cost of a post-graduate activity or your graduate or professional education. Many are discipline-specific and application to some require the assistance of an appointed campus liaison or faculty advisor.
Additional Information Before Applying
They may have campus deadlines well before the published national deadline so it’s important to contact them at least 3 months ahead of the national deadline. Questions? Don’t hesitate to make an appointment to clarify requirements and other options that may also be a good fit!
