Fourth Years, Graduate Students and Recent Alumni

General Information and Tips for Prospective Fellowships Applicants

Fellowships are merit-based awards for further academic study or research disbursed through national, and sometimes international, competitions. Some sponsors also use the term “scholarship” in the name of their awards. In the context of national academic competitions, a fellowship should not be confused with traditional sources of financial aid. Recipients are usually selected on the basis of high academic achievement, scholarly promise, career goals, leadership skills, service to others, character, and sometimes financial need. 
 

The fellowship and scholarship programs described below are open to graduating seniors, recent graduates, and graduate students. This is a selective list. The federal government, foreign governments, and private philanthropic organizations sponsor these award programs; they provide funding based on academic merit and other criteria to support advanced study or research in the U.S. and abroad after completion of the bachelor‘s degree. See the individual programs‘ official websites for complete information on eligibility requirements, application procedures, application forms, and exact filing deadlines. Many sites also include profiles of past winners.
