Fellowships

Costs and Aid

Fellowships

“Fellowship” is a generic term that encompasses nationally competitive grants, scholarships, and similar funding opportunities. Typically, fellowships fund study, research, or teaching in the U.S. or abroad. Fellowships are an investment in your future, not a reward for previous work.

Competitive students are energetic and high achieving, with the potential to make significant contributions for the public good. Additional assets include

  • High GPAs;
  • Service-Learning courses or meaningful volunteer experience;
  • Honors courses (and other rigorous coursework);
  • Research experience;
  • Studying abroad (preferably for a full term, not just during a break between semesters);
  • Leadership and participation in campus and community activities.
