The Fellowships & Postgraduate Scholarships Program advises Smith students and recent alums who wish to apply for national and international fellowships and scholarships. Our approach—informing, advising, encouraging and working with candidates and their mentors—facilitates your planning of the important next stages in your education, career and life. We seek to enable students and alums to imagine and create pathways that fulfill their passions; fit their educational, career and life goals; and further Smith’s mission of developing engaged global citizens and leaders to address society’s challenges.

Are you a potential applicant? Aspire to pursue the fellowships and scholarships that fit you. Collaborate around the opportunities that suit you and then apply!


Great Fulbright News!
