EXTERNAL FELLOWSHIP OPPORTUNITIES

Fellowships enable individuals to pursue study in their fields or to introduce them to related fields. Although not consistently defined, some sponsors place their emphasis on contribution to the individual’s own scholarly development. A fellowship often advances, synthesizes, or enlarges the applicant’s special area of interest. Or, it may enable the recipient to study in a different area which will extend his or her competence.

Fellowships are similar to scholarships that you may have received as an undergraduate; with the exception that, unlike undergraduate scholarships, the majority of graduate students receive fellowship support at various times during their graduate student career. Fellowships are awards or grants that you do not have to pay back and are intended to attract highly qualified students to graduate programs. These fellowships typically provide payment of College fees, tuition, and/or a stipend for living expenses.

A number of external agencies, foundations, or other entities offer external fellowships or grants that are offered to an individual student by an external organization or agency for study at the College the student attends. These fellowships are awards or grants that the student does not have to pay back. Continuing and entering graduate students at Baruch are strongly encouraged to individually apply to these fellowship programs. Most external fellowships or grants are based on academic merit, although there may be some fellowship awards that are intended for certain people like children of veterans, people studying in a certain field of study, students with financial need, etc.
