The College supports students in their pursuit of competitive national and international fellowships. Through the College Center for Scholarly Advancement (CCSA), students receive individual and group advising for funding opportunities including, but not limited to, the Fulbright US Student Program, the British Marshall Scholarship, the Rhodes Scholarship, the Schwarzman Scholars Program, Yenching Academy Scholars, The National Science Foundation’s Graduate Research Fellowship, the Truman Scholarship in public service, the Gates Cambridge Scholarship, the Mitchell Scholarship, the Churchill Scholarship, and the Beinecke Scholarship. The CCSA also provides resources for students considering graduate school or in search of other postgraduate funding opportunities. CCSA staff members provide general support to students by identifying relevant opportunities and assisting in strategically planning for those opportunities, closely mentor students through rigorous application processes, and facilitate campus endorsement procedures when relevant. Undergraduates can access a searchable database and guidance about nationally competitive opportunities on the CCSA website; they are also encouraged to sign up for a weekly listserv to stay up-to-date about opportunities, deadlines, and relevant information sessions.
In addition, departments may be able to provide details on funded opportunities for student research within specific fields. Students should also look into the funding opportunities available through Career Advancement.
