National Fellowships and Scholarships

What are National Fellowships and Scholarships? Simply put, they are merit-based, highly competitive, opportunities funded by governments, individual philanthropists, and private organizations. The opportunities of this kind that we administer mainly fund travel, graduate study, or independent research abroad. One, however, funds graduate study in the U.S.; another supports research at a major think tank; and another rewards candidates for excellent work in the STEM fields. Each funding body has a mission.
