Why Fellowships?

Applying for these awards is about much more than money – much of the value of fellowships lies primarily in the application process itself.

It’s an opportunity to

  • Reflect on your academic and life experiences
  • Learn how to write effective and persuasive essays
  • Expand personal and professional networks
  • Prepare for grad school applications

Receiving a nationally competitive scholarship recognizes a student’s academic and leadership potential and conveys confidence in the student’s ability to make positive contributions to his or her own field of study both nationally and internationally.
