What is a fellowship? A fellowship is a merit based award of financial support to an individual for personal and/or academic development. Some fellowships might support you in getting an advanced degree from a foreign university. Others might support your summer research project. And still others might fund a trip to a remote part of the world for self-discovery.

What fellowships are available? Some are well known like the Rhodes or Marshall Scholarships. But there are a large number and a wide range of fellowships available to Harvard students and the best place to learn about them is at the Undergraduate Research and Fellowships office (URAF) website.

Who can help me get started? The Fellowships Committee in Leverett is a team of Leverett resident and non-resident tutors who are here to help you discover and apply for these funding opportunities.
