What are Fellowships?

Have you ever considered teaching English abroad?  Pursuing a summer or year of service with an NGO?  Going to Oxford for graduate school (and finding funding for it)?  Our team at the Career Center can help you identify opportunities that fit you and guide you throughout the application process for nationally competitive fellowships. We invite you to connect with the Career Center to learn more about the broad range of extraordinary awards that are out there to support students like you!

Vanderbilt University’s Career Center is here to assist undergraduates and recent alumni with competitive fellowship or scholarship applications. We also support students enrolled in Vanderbilt’s professional master’s programs. Those enrolled in the Graduate School at Vanderbilt University should contact Student Services Assistant Amanda King for assistance.
