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.
