Office of Prestigious Fellowships
At the Office for Prestigious Fellowships, our goal is to connect students with opportunities to further their intellectual and personal growth. We do this by raising awareness about prestigious scholarship and fellowship programs, helping students discover appropriate opportunities, counseling prospective applicants about their eligibility, and guiding them through the entire application process.
We are a resource for all students and alumni, both undergraduate and graduate, of Fordham University. In particular, we seek to work with students who have demonstrated exceptional promise and distinguished themselves through extraordinary academic achievements, extracurricular involvement, and leadership activities, as well as a passion for creating positive change in their communities and the larger world.
