Students interested in any of these awards are encouraged to contact Kate Knaul, Director of Fellowships & Awards ( as early as possible to talk through eligibility and identify faculty members and others who can serve as advocates and resources.

Other Fellowships & Awards: Searchable Databases and Websites

Many other fellowships and awards exist. If you find one, you are strongly encouraged to bring the information to the fellowship adviser to determine eligibility and resources to help you apply.

DePauw special funding opportunities

Many students are looking for additional funding to suppor their cost of education at DePauw. While there are a few external awards that support DePauw on-campus cost of attendance (e.g., Goldwater) the vast majority of external awards support expenses away from campus (e.g., study abroad, competitive summer internships). For resources to help with the on-campus cost of attendance, please inquire with the Office of Financial Aid. 

The Hubbard Center for Student Engagement has additional funding for unpaid summer internships and professional development funding. You can contact them at
