Office of Prestigious Fellowships
At the Office for Prestigious Fellowships, we connect students with opportunities to further their intellectual and personal growth. We guide students through the entire process, whether they are searching for a fellowship that fits their goals, drafting application essays, or preparing for interviews with selection committees.
We are a resource for all students and alumni, both undergraduate and graduate, of Fordham University. We seek promising students who have 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.
