Think it’s too late to apply for a fellowship? Think that fellowships only benefit those pursuing careers in academia?

Think again!

Fellowships such as the Rhodes, the Marshall, and the Fulbright welcome applications from those with extraordinary achievement, intense passion, and deep intellectual curiosity. Moreover, they seek those who have already made that passion and curiosity bear fruit. Given this, alumni are just as, if not even more, competitive for fellowships than they were at the undergraduate level – whether professional or academic in nature, the results of the work of alumni are particularly attractive to fellowships. Further, alumni may find the training and cross-cultural experience supported by fellowships to be instrumental in the development of a current or new career.

In this webinar, the Office of Fellowships, Awards, and Resources (GOFAR) will introduce you to the fellowship process and will name several fellowships of particular interest to Georgetown alumni. Specifically, they will address:

• What is a fellowship?
• Why should alumni apply for fellowships?
• For what fellowships are alumni eligible?
• What kind of support does GOFAR offer to alumni applicants?
• I’m sold! How can I get started?
