Many national scholarships and prestigious fellowships require campus nomination or endorsement in order to apply. In these cases, Williams establishes a campus deadline that is several weeks or months in advance of the submission deadline posted by the awarding organization’s website. The tables below list the fellowships that have a preliminary campus deadline, as well as major programs that do not have a preliminary deadline.
Students or recent graduates who seek nomination for any of these awards should attend an information session and schedule an individual meeting with the Fellowships Office. Students should self-enroll in the Fellowships Office GLOW course where you can find campus-specific instructions for your application. Alumni, contact Lynn Chick, Fellowships Coordinator for relevant documents.
All dates subject to change.
