This information refers to the application and recommendations process for all fellowships that use the common application. You may select as many individually named fellowships as you believe are appropriate to your project; the selection committee will identify the source from which your fellowship is funded.

Application Process

Deadlines: FALL 2023: Tuesday, October 17, 2023 at 11:59 pm; WINTER 2024: Tuesday, February 6, 2024 at 11:59pm (CST); and SPRING 2024: Tuesday, April 16, 2024 at 11:59pm (CST).

A complete application packet includes:

  • Online Application, with attached single PDF containing your transcript, resume, etc.
  • Two recommendations, which will be requested from those you name in the application and submitted using the appropriate form below.
    • BE SURE TO ASK recommenders before listing them on the application.
    • NOTE: Using Carleton faculty or staff as recommenders is usually the best choice.  Non-Carleton recommenders may disadvantage you as they may not know Carleton, and the selection committee does not know them.  Use your judgment in this, as in all other areas.

Recommendations Process

  • The Office of Student Fellowships will forward finalized proposals to the your recommenders following the application due date.
  • Recommenders should submit the appropriate Online Recommendation Form using the link provided in the recommendation request.
  • Recommendations are due at 11:59pm (cst) on the Monday following each application deadline date (October 23, 2023; February 12, 2024; and April 22, 2024, respectively)
