Fellowships & Awards
Learn more about how nationally competitive fellowships, scholarships and awards can help you accomplish your post-graduate goals.
WELCOME to the DePauw University Fellowships & Awards pages.
Here you will find information about nationally competitive fellowships, scholarships, and awards that support study, research, or teaching in a wide range of academic disciplines. Recipients of scholarships attend graduate programs, conduct research and teach in countries around the world. They become leaders in their fields of study and in their communities.
For most national fellowships and awards, DePauw maintains its own internal deadlines, which typically occur in the fall semester a full month or more before the national deadline. This allows DePauw faculty and staff to assist students in navigating the competitive and selective application process. Students are encouraged to begin speaking with the fellowship advisoers a year before the fellowship deadline.
Please browse the Fellowships & Awards page for a list of opportunities available to students and recent graduates, or contact Kate Knaul, Assistant Dean of Experiential Learning and Director of National Fellowships & Awards in the Hubbard Center for Student Engagement, firstname.lastname@example.org for further details.
