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. (View a select list of fellowships here.)
We coordinate the nomination process for certain fellowships that require institutional endorsement, and also advise students regarding their applications for direct-apply fellowships (which 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.
