Accept the challenge! 

Post-graduate fellowships and scholarships provide life-changing opportunities through their generous financial support for study and research. The College has recently bolstered support for students and alumni seeking high-profile national fellowships and scholarships through its Office of Fellowships and Scholarships.

With a Connecticut College education, you will be in a prime position to compete for scholarships and fellowships. Opportunities exist for both current students and alumni. The list of fellowships and the Fellowships FAQ page will tell you all you need to know to get started.

Staff in the Walter Commons will work with you throughout the application process. They will help you assess your candidacy, focus your study/research interest and may also point you in the direction of other possibilities. They will also help you with applications for awards that do not require the College’s nomination.
