Welcome to Fellowships

National fellowships are prestigious, merit-based awards that fund graduate study in the U.S. or abroad, research experiences, language learning, or international travel. Our role is to support you in pursuing these global learning opportunities.

Through one-on-one meetings and group sessions, we help you identify relevant fellowships, build a strong candidate profile, and complete the application process. We work with students from all backgrounds and are committed to improving access for applicants from underrepresented groups.

Keep up with deadlines, announcements and interesting funding opportunities - follow Fellowships at Wesleyan on Facebook!

We look forward to hearing from you! Schedule an advising appointment
