Fellowships 101 sessions cover the basics of postgraduate fellowships -- what they are and how you can apply for them. We will give special attention to major post-baccalaureate international fellowships (Rhodes, Marshall, Mitchell, Gates, Churchill, Thouron, Fulbright) and describe the timeline and requirements for application to each.
This session will also provide undergraduates with strategies for deepening your engagement at Penn and in your extracurricular activities to help you understand the broader context of the application process.
Although you will decide which specific degree programs best suit your interests at the start of the application process, this session should also help you understand the importance of focusing on specific programs that will help you attain your personal and professional goals.
Perhaps most importantly, there will be ample time for you to ask questions about any aspect of the fellowship process and hear from at least one former fellowship winner.
Should you decide to apply for post-baccalaureate fellowships, this session will be your first stop in gathering information on the opportunities available and the application process. Students are asked to attend a Fellowships 101 session before scheduling an individual fellowships consultation with Dr. Wallace Genser at CURF.
Workshops will be held in CURF’s Fireside Lounge on the 2nd floor of the ARCH building (3601 Locust Walk).
