Welcome to Student Fellowships!

Each year, Carleton students are awarded some of the most prestigious fellowships for graduate study, language study, teaching and research abroad, and other pursuits.  Preparing for these life-changing opportunities requires work well in advance of submission deadlines.  It takes time to find fellowships that best match your interests, experience, and academic and extracurricular life, and prepare the strongest application materials you can.

It also takes time to develop your qualifications to the fullest by the time you apply for prestigious national and international awards.  Carleton’s internal fellowships (along with internships and other opportunities) support research and other experiences that make you a stronger candidate for other awards, and applying for them also helps you learn how to write strong proposals. 

Use the links at the left to explore the different fellowship opportunities open to you!  You will also find general information and guidance to help you get started thinking about fellowships.  Once you have some ideas or questions, come visit the Office of Student Fellowships in the Dean of the College Suite (Laird Hall 131) or call x4300 to set up an appointment with Marynel Ryan Van Zee, Director of Student Fellowships.
