Applications for Carleton-funded fellowships are due March 28, 2023!


The Larson International Fellowship was established in 1986 by grants to Carleton from Robert ’56, John ’60, and David Larson ’63 in memory of their parents, Frances W. and Eugene Larson. Both Frances and Eugene had a deep interest in Carleton and were champions of international understanding and involvement. Awarded annually, Larson International Fellowships provide a significant international experience for students with strong leadership potential. You can learn about some recent Larson International Fellowship experiences here!
