Fellowships and National Awards


CMC students are well positioned to apply for a range of nationally and internationally competitive external fellowship and scholarship opportunities, including the Fulbright, Truman, Rhodes, Marshall, Goldwater, Udall, and Gates-Cambridge awards. Fellowships like these can support public service, independent projects, and post-graduate study in the U.S. and abroad.

We administer competitions for sophomores, juniors, and seniors that require institutional nomination to external programs, and also advise students regarding their applications for direct-apply fellowships (fellowships that don't require a nomination from CMC).

Resources available to CMC students and alumni include:

  • counseling on which fellowship opportunities fit you best;
  • guidance on the application process;
  • providing feedback on your personal statements and project proposals;
  • interview preparation;
  • sources for finding fellowships, writing applications, and asking for letters of recommendation.
