What is a Fellowship?

A fellowship can be awarded by an institution or organization for many reasons. They can be focused around research, teaching or training. Fellowships generally are designed to advance the applicant’s knowledge in a certain area or specialization. Fellowships can be obtained as many as five years after graduation from a master’s program and can be an alternative to a full time position. Because fellowships are sometimes based on merit, they can be a nice addition to your resume or curriculum vitae. Fellowships usually begin accepting applications as early as October with deadlines occurring through February and March.

What is an Internship?

An internship is an experiential learning opportunity which provides a different experience as compared to a part time job or volunteer work. An internship or practicum is an educational experience with ongoing communication between the student, the student’s adviser and the employer’s preceptor. During the internship or practicum, the student should have the opportunity to link key academic knowledge to practical work experiences. In most situations, the student and the preceptor outline a set of agreed upon internship objectives, against which the student is evaluated at the end of the opportunity.
