About Us

Under the umbrella of the  Career and Community Engagement Center, the Fellowships and Grants team 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, leadership and community engagement/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.

We follow a simple protocol for students who are new to the office. To begin the process, please complete and return an applicant information and waiver form. The form gives us a good blueprint of your academic standing, service and leadership, all of which figure into any competitive fellowship, scholarship or grant application. Also, please send us a copy of your unofficial transcript and a resume/c.v. if you have one. 

Director for Fellowships and Grants,  Dr.  Jess Hernandez,  is available via appointment.  Feel free to contact Jess or Jenny using the contact information below.
