The Fellowships Office, located in Dewey Hall, coordinates the program for selected national fellowship and scholarship competitions. The office maintains information on and assists students applying for many awards, including:

Depending on the award, it may support undergraduate or graduate study in the US or abroad. Fellowships programs are described on the Fellowships Office website.


The Fellowships Office can help students apply for appropriate fellowships and scholarships. Students interested in learning more about these awards, and the application process, should attend an information session or call (585) 276-5869 to schedule an appointment with the fellowships director.


While official deadlines for most fellowships competitions are in early fall or early winter, University of Rochester campus application deadlines are much earlier. This allows fellowship staff time to review and provide feedback on your application before you submit it. Campus deadlines can be as early as a semester before the official fellowship deadline.

Potential applicants are encouraged to consult the fellowships director as early as possible to begin laying the foundation of a competitive candidacy for a prestigious fellowship.
