Office of Fellowships

The Office of Fellowships advises Amherst College students and alumni/ae for a number of national fellowships and scholarships as well as Amherst College Fellowships. These awards range from full to partial funding and can support public service, teaching, independent projects and post-graduate study, in the U.S. and abroad. We administer competitions for sophomores, juniors, seniors, and recent graduates that require institutional nomination to external programs as well as Amherst-funded fellowships for graduates and graduating seniors.
