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.

Below is a partial list of fellowships; your employment search may generate a more comprehensive list particular to your area of interest. In addition, the Graduate School offers additional information about fellowships and funding.
