POST-GRADUATE SCHOLARSHIPS AND FELLOWSHIPS OVERVIEW
Monday, April 24, 5:00pm
During this session we will provide a brief overview of key post-graduate scholarships and fellowships: Fulbright, UK & Ireland awards (Rhodes, Marshall, Gates Cambridge, Mitchell), Schwarzman Scholars, Soros Fellowship, Rangel Fellowship, and the new Knight-Hennessy Scholars program. In addition to providing information on these prestigious awards, we will discuss UT’s campus process for applying and receiving university nomination. In particular, we will look at UT’s Preliminary Campus Application. This brief application must be completed—no later than May 8—for students interested in any of the aforementioned awards. We’ll leave time for questions.

We’ll take a deeper dive on the UK and Ireland awards: the Rhodes, Marshall, Gates Cambridge, and Mitchell Scholarships, which represent some of the world’s most competitive awards for post-graduate study and require UT’s endorsement to apply. If you are interested in applying for one or more of these awards, please join us to learn more about each program and what the application process looks like, from the preliminary campus application to the endorsement process and beyond.

Wednesday, April 26, 5:00pm
The Fulbright is the largest U.S. exchange program providing opportunities for students to undertake year-long, post-graduate research, arts projects, graduate study, or teaching in one of 140+ countries around the globe. We’ll look at the specific components of the Fulbright application and provide tips on how to start the process of applying, including completing the UT preliminary campus application.
