The Office of Fellowships and Grants works closely with Whitman students and alumni in their candidacy for national scholarships, fellowships and grants. Please browse our various databases for opportunities. Refer to our Fellowships Calendar for application deadlines.

Each year Whitman students earn generous awards for graduate study, research, teaching, public service and independent projects in the U.S. and abroad. Successful applicants typically excel in three areas: academic achievement and future promise; demonstrated leadership; community engagement and service.

Candidates are advised to explore opportunities that best match their interests, experience and long-term goals, and to work well in advance of submission deadlines. Competition for merit-based fellowships, scholarships and grants is keen. Applications require careful thought and considerable preparation.
