The Fellowships Advisor assists the student in all stages of the application process for approximately 30 competitive, merit-based national and international fellowships. The advisor provides information and advice on available programs, opportunities for strategic planning and reflection, and guidance for completing a competitive application to these specific awards. The advisor also reads and comments upon scholarship essays and other application materials for supported awards only.

One-on-one personalized advising is available year-round.

  2. Complete the Prospective Fellowship Candidate Intake Form at least 24 hours prior to the appointment.

Please select a meeting time that is at least 2 to 5 business days in the future so that our advisors can dedicate time to carefully review your materials before your appointment.
