Global Fellowships Prep: 2019-20

What is it?

Global Fellowships Prep is intended to bring together UW students (juniors, seniors, bachelor’s alumni, grad/professional students and alumni) exploring opportunities for 2019-20, to consider a wide range of scholarships that could support plans to attend graduate school, conduct research and/or engage in communities. Largely we’ll be focused on scholarships that can fund those experiences abroad, but we’ll include a few that support students staying in the US as well. Most of the scholarships relevant to these activities have similar application processes, and all of them have deadlines that fall between September-November 2018 to fund activities during the 2019-20 academic year.

If you’re wanting to think about what you will be doing in 2019-20, 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 2019, or whether you’re already in grad school and looking for opportunities to extend your work beyond UW, join us to explore those options and more.
