Principal Fellowships

Start with a quick summary of the principal fellowships supported by Smith (information sheet). We are familiar with these competitions and frequently support candidates who apply. Where nomination or endorsement is required or an option, we work with others on campus to make selections and provide campus support for our endorsed candidates.

After you’ve done a little exploring on your own, make an appointment to talk with an adviser. Express your interest in fellowships. If you are interested in Fulbright, make contact with the Fast Track adviser. Talk with your faculty advisers and other mentors about your plans.

US citizens may apply for all opportunities listed below. Those with a different citizenship may apply for some opportunities listed; see information for international students.
