Multiple donor-funded fellowships are available to support research and other activities for Carleton students. For awards administered by the Office of Student Fellowships (OSF), we sort the types of support into the two broad categories of ‘research’ and ‘experiential’ fellowships. Research fellowships are just that – support for your research. Experiential fellowships support a different kind of learning that may include internships, service learning, travel with friends, or other activities. Some fellowships support both research and experiential opportunities and are listed on both pages. Please familiarize yourself with the different options before completing the application(s) for the fellowship(s) of your choice!
Before submitting your application, you must meet with Marynel Ryan Van Zee, Director of Student Fellowships, to discuss your proposed budget.
Marynel will hold open office hours from 1:30-2:30pm, January 25-29 and February 1-5, in Laird 131. No appointment necessary. Plan for a 10-15 minute meeting.
All fellowships require a 'Bring-Back' in order to share experiences and cultivate interest in Carleton fellowships. For some ideas, click here.
