Apply for National Fellowships

Dear All,

Have you heard about national fellowships? They are fully funded, usually year-long programs that support a range of global and domestic experiences – from independent exploration to research and graduate study to English teaching.

  • Most fellowships are open to graduating seniors and recent alumni from any academic discipline and don’t have a minimum GPA requirement.
  • Some are discipline-specific, intended for STEM, humanities, or social science majors.
  • Most are only open to U.S. citizens, but a few are open to all citizenships.

For programs that take place in 2022-23, campus deadlines are usually in late summer/early fall 2021.

If you’re in the Class of 2021, consider the Fulbright Study/Research or English Teaching Assistant grants. These awards allow you to spend a year in one of 100+ participating countries, pursuing independent research or graduate study or teaching English in the classroom. They are open to graduating seniors and recent alumni who are U.S. citizens.

If you’re in the Class of 2022, consider the Fulbright (above) and the Watson. Open to graduating seniors of all citizenships and academic backgrounds, the Watson supports a post-graduation year of independent travel pursuing an experiential project that grows out of your passion. The Watson has a narrow window of eligibility – you may only apply in early fall of your senior year– so don’t miss out!

If you’re in the Class of 2023 or 2024, look into the Goldwater (STEM research), Udall (environmental issues), Truman(leadership in public service), and Beinecke, and start thinking about Fulbright and Watson (see above).

Explore our website to learn about other fellowship opportunities and watch short video testimonials from recent applicants.

To learn more about applying for fellowships, please watch this recording. Fellowships Assistant Genesis Garcia ’22 and I talk about what fellowships are, what experiences they fund, who can apply, and why you should be thinking about them. I also encourage you to watch this recording, in which recent fellowship applicants from Wesleyan share their experiences and advice.

Throughout the spring semester, Fellowships Assistant Genesis Garcia ‘22 is holding peer advising drop-in hours via Zoom. Please stop by on Mondays from 5-6 and Wednesdays from 2-3 at the following link: https://wesleyan.zoom.us/s/92250822173.

You’re also welcome to sign up for a video appointment on my calendar to talk about choosing the right program and planning the application process. As I mentioned earlier, for programs that take place in 2022-23, campus deadlines are usually in late summer/early fall 2021, so now is a good time to plan.

We are looking forward to talking to you!

Best wishes,

Understanding, Validating & Healing From Trauma – 3/3 & 3/10

You are invited to participate in a two-part series we will be offering to students in the Wes community regarding personal trauma and substance use on campus.

In the first part, Understanding, Validating & Healing From Trauma, Demetrius Colvin (SRC), Jami Carlacio (ORSL), and September Johnson (WesWell) will speak about various forms of trauma they have encountered and the coping mechanisms- both healthy and unhealthy- that they have used to deal with it. In the second part, Coping and Connecting in Crisis: Substance Use and Self-Care During College, the speakers will share their experience as it relates to substance use (in the family and personally) and again, how they found hope by using effective coping skills and seeking help.

The presentation blends storytelling with professional knowledge and aims to reach students through presenters personal accounts of trauma and substance use. The focus ultimately centers on coping, recovery, and resilience, with the message being that life is messy but/and that we can emerge from it whole when we have the right support and resources.  We ask that you promote these two events with students, staff, and/or faculty you know who may benefit from it, whether as a trauma sufferer/survivor or as a resource for anyone who might need help. To be clear, we hope to start a campus-wide conversation about the increased intensity of challenges facing college students today as they navigate illness, death, isolation, fear, and insecurity due to the pandemic and to the effects of structural racism.

The presentations will be held on:

Wednesday March 3 from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m.
