Prepare for Your Future

Dear Student,

Welcome! The Office of Fellowships website is designed to help you launch your search for national and international fellowship competitions that meet your educational, intellectual, and personal needs. Fellowships fall into many categories. Some provide funding to support you to attend graduate school; some others allow you to study or to conduct research overseas to gain practical experience in your field of study.  A few are available for undergraduate study.

I encourage you to browse our website and look for fellowships that fit you, your experiences, and your goals.  Once you have decided upon which scholarships or fellowships that you think match you the best, please contact the Peer Scholarship Advisors at to set up a time to meet with them and fill out a fellowship intake form before you begin the application process and consult with me.

Please be aware that strong applications require a significant investment of time - time to reflect upon your interests and your future plans and time to prepare the application, especially the essays. The earlier you begin to think about these scholarships, the better.

I look forward to meeting you,

Dr. Laura Damuth
Director of National and International Fellowships
