The Office of Fellowships offers services to help students gain a competitive edge in the application process and grow personally from the experience of applying to a nationally competitive fellowship. Typically, fellowships fund study, research, or teaching in the U.S. or abroad. These awards are competitive and are awarded to students who 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; leadership and participation in campus and community activities.
