The Office of Fellowships and Grants assists Whitman students and alumni in their application and candidacy for national fellowships, scholarships and grants.
Each year our scholars receive generous awards for graduate study, self-directed research, teaching and public service in the United States and abroad. While these outcomes are gratifying to our students and important in the overarching mission of the college, a more important measure of meaning in our work is the self-examination that each applicant undertakes in the pursuit of opportunities, and the awareness that results from that exploration.
Ultimately, our goal is to help students think deeply and critically about issues, ideas and values; about their lives and the lives of others. Equipped with self-reflection, they will know better who they are and what they might contribute to the community. Having put their critical thinking to the test, they will have a better vantage of the larger world around them and their humble yet essential place in it.
