National and international scholarships and fellowships provide extraordinary opportunities for study, research, and professional experience. Typically funded by government grants or private foundations and recent graduates who are interested in public service, independent projects, and post-graduate study in the US and abroad.
The awards range from full to partial funding. Some fellowships are very specific about the areas of study they support while others are more open. Most are highly competitive and come along with other possible benefits, including international prestige, preferential admission to graduate schools, leadership training, opportunities for international exchange, and access to networks of individuals who share ambitious goals.
All fellowship applications require considerable time and effort, and some of them require a nomination or endorsement by Bucknell University before you can apply.
