Welcome to the Office of Fellowships and Awards

Established in 2003, the Office of Fellowships and Awards supports students interested in a broad range of fellowships, scholarships, and awards for domestic and international study, research, and professional development.

In the spirit of the Jesuit ideal of Cura Personalis, care for the individual person, the office assists students in realizing the direction best suited to their individual passions and talents. The skills they develop in this process, while directly relevant to fellowship competitions, are broadly applicable for a wide range of both academic and professional opportunities and competitions. 

These fellowships are not simply study-abroad programs; rather, each award is a prize given to an individual with extraordinary achievement, intense passion, and deep intellectual curiosity: someone who has already made that passion and curiosity bear fruit. As such, fellowships are not easily won. Students should begin thinking about this process as early as possible. They require time, energy, and determination.
