Research Abroad

Wesleyan has a proud history of students winning prestigious international post-graduate awards. Over the past 10 years, Wesleyan has had two Rhodes Scholars, one Marshall Scholar, three Luce Scholars, 47 Fulbright Scholars, and 14 Watson Fellows. More information about applying for international post-graduate fellowships is available here.

Sophomores and juniors may also apply for Davenport Study Grants to conduct summer research in a public affairs topic. Many students use these funds—up to $3,000—to conduct research abroad. Past Davenport grant recipients have authored titles including “Dreams and Disappointment: India’s Muslims, the Muhajir, and the Making of Pakistan,” “Breaking the Silence: Chile and El Salvador Commemorate their Disappeared,” and “Strangers in the Homeland: The Ethiopian-Israeli Search for Authenticity.” Read more titles here.
