Ready to apply for a nationally-competitive award? If this is your first time applying for fellowships at Drexel, we recommend the following steps:
- Start preparing early
While applying for national fellowships is a lot of work, it’ll be less stressful and more rewarding if you take some steps to prepare before you get started.
- Learn more about how the Center for Scholar Development can help.
The Center for Scholar Development encourages students to apply for nationally-competitive awards. Our role varies depending on the type of award, with our advisors working most directly and intensely with applicants for our administered ("Core") awards.
- Understand the application process.
Learn more about what’s involved in the actual process of applying for fellowships, including advice for writing those all-important application essays.
- Meet with a Fellowships Advisor
Attend a Fellowships 101 session to speak with an advisor or ask general questions about fellowships. If you are interested in a specific Core or Priority Award or for feedback on application drafts, please complete our Fellowships Interest Form to request an individual appointment. Otherwise, attendance at Fellowships 101 is a prerequisite for meeting with a Fellowships Advisor.
