Carleton’s Office of Student Fellowships provides direct support to students applying for Carleton-funded fellowship opportunities (open only to Carleton students), as well as students preparing applications for national and international fellowship opportunities (which are open to students and alumni of other institutions).

Carleton-funded fellowships (along with internships and other opportunities) support research and other experiences that enrich your Carleton education, help you learn about your interests, and make you a stronger candidate for other opportunities (including jobs and national or international fellowship opportunities). Writing an application for a Carleton-funded fellowship also helps you learn to write strong proposals for funding and other things.

National and international fellowships offer Carls support for graduate study; travel; participation in special opportunities; and the chance to make a difference in the world.

Explore this website to find all the fellowship opportunities open to you! You will also find general information and guidance to help you start thinking about fellowships. Nobody is born knowing how to apply for a fellowship! So once you have ideas and questions, set up an appointment with Marynel Ryan Van Zee, Director of Student Fellowships using her Google Calendar appointment page. Marynel is eager to help you understand what fellowships are, the value of applying for them, and how to get started!
