Supporting Student Success

8.8 The Campion Institute

The Office of Prestigious Fellowships supports students (and alumni) through the process of applying for external fellowships and grants. As a result of receiving guidance on multiple drafts of their applications, applicants yield valuable long-term benefits from the experience of applying no matter the outcome of their application. Interested students and alumni should contact fellowships@fordham.edu to be connected with an advisor.

The Office of Prestigious Fellowships holds presentations and workshops that alert students to different opportunities and demystify the process of applying by explaining various elements of the application process, such as crafting project proposals, writing Personal Statements, and participating in mock-interviews. More information about the office, our events, and individual fellowships may be found at fordham.edu/fellowships.

The Office of Prestigious Fellowships is part of the Campion Institute, which was created to advance excellence throughout the University, thus enhancing the University’s reputation both nationally and internationally. Under the patronage of the 16th-century scholar and martyr St. Edmund Campion, the institute exists to encourage students to undertake ever more challenging intellectual opportunities in the Ignatian tradition of magis, through the development of discernment and eloquentia perfecta, not merely for self-interest but more for the service of humanity.

The Interim Director of the Campion Institute is Dr. Anna Beskin. Please contact Dr. Beskin (beskin[at]fordham.edu) with any questions.
