Making your way to postgraduate fellowships...

The path to major fellowships is forged in many ways throughout your College experience.  In addition to developing strong relationships with professors and staff advisers, students must construct a personal narrative of their academic journey that includes actively engaging in leadership roles, taking advantage of research opportunities and demonstrating sustained interest in academic and personal passions. Connecticut College students are well equipped to accomplish this through our unique Connections curriculum and by taking advantage of the many opportunities available to them during their time at Conn from rigorous language learning, to study away, to summer internships. 

Work with faculty and staff to plan a strategy that will help create a strong profile for post-graduate opportunities.
