Common application form to be used for all fellowships EXCEPT the David C. Donelson, Hanson Ethics, Nancy Wilkie, and and Technos International Week Fellowships.

Some fellowship funds offer financial support for experiences.  This is a broad category that can include internships and other hands-on activities related to your academic or professional goals, service learning, and experiences without an explicit purpose beyond intellectual and personal development or enhancing your intercultural awareness. 

The Chang-Lan, Professor Roy F. Grow, and Larson International Fellowships use a common application form; the David C. Donelson Fellowship, Nancy Wilkie Fellowship, and Technos International Week Opportunity use individual application forms that may be accessed via the links below.

For the fellowships that use the common application, the important thing is to describe well what you want to do – if your proposal is selected for funding, the committee will determine the source.

All fellowship applications require recommendations. As part of the application, you will enter the names of your recommenders; please be sure they have agreed to provide a recommendation. Following the due date, we will send a copy of your finalized application for their review and direct them to the form to complete a recommendation form for you.

Here are some general guidelines for writing a successful proposal. View some samples. The Writing Center can also be a useful resource!

All fellowships require a “Bring-Back” in order to share experiences and raise interest in Carleton fellowships. You will describe your planned bring-back as part of your application; get some ideas on the After Your Fellowship page.

All fellowship applicants must be in good academic standing. In addition, fellowships may not be awarded to students who are on probation or suspension for conduct violations. 

You may not accept more than one form of Carleton funding (from the Career Center; the Center for Global and Regional Studies; the Jonathan Paradise Israel Experience Fund; Kolenkow-Reitz Fellowship Program; and/or the Office of Student Fellowships) to support the same project.

Does your planned experience include travel?

All of these fellowships may be used to support travel, and some of them have stipulations:
