Use the pages linked below to explore external opportunities open to Carleton students. The number of national and international fellowships you can apply for will increase as you near graduation (there are more for juniors and seniors than there are for first-year students and sophomores), but it is still smart to learn early about the wide range of awards out there as early as possible! Knowing well in advance what is expected gives you time to think about how what you are doing now may open up opportunities later.
Director of Student Fellowships Marynel Ryan Van Zee is eager to work with students to help them explore their interests, and understand how fellowship opportunities might connect to those interests, as early as possible. Please make an appointment if you want to learn more, or get started!
