Global Fellowships Prep: 2020-2021

What is it?

Global Fellowships Prep brings together UW students (undergraduates–especially juniors and seniors, bachelor’s alumni, grad/professional students and alumni) to explore post-graduate fellowships for 2020-2021. These fellowships support graduate school, research, creative work, community-based projects, and English teaching primarily abroad. We have also included a few opportunities that support students staying in the U.S. Most of the scholarships relevant to these activities have similar application processes, and all of them have deadlines that fall between September-November 2019 to fund activities during the 2020-21 academic year.

If you’re thinking about what you will be doing in 2020-21, whether you’ll have graduated by that point and are looking for “gap” year experiences, whether you’re looking to start grad school in fall 2020, or whether you’re already in grad school and are looking for opportunities to extend your work beyond UW, join us to explore those options and more. First-year and sophomore undergraduates are also encouraged to join us to learn about these opportunities early and strategically plan and prepare for a future application.

To take advantage of the greatest number of opportunities, sign up by April 12, 2019.
