Fellowships

What is a Fellowship?

Fellowships are typically merit-based scholarships that fund students and alumni to conduct research, complete a project, and/or study at the undergraduate or graduate level.

Some of the fellowships listed here require a two-step application process beginning with an initial institutional nomination. The Earlham Liaison listed within each description can provide more complete information on application procedures.

Application Deadlines

Fellowship application deadlines are often scheduled in the early Fall of the student’s senior year. Interested students need to begin the application process during the preceding Spring semester, if not sooner.
