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.

Two Amherst students intent on spreading justice at home and abroad will soon be putting those plans into action, thanks to the Harry S. Truman Scholarship Foundation. A third student has been awarded a Beineke Scholarship to pursue graduate study in environmental history.
Purpose: The Harry S. Truman Scholarship Foundation was established by Congress in 1975 as the federal memorial to our thirty-third President. The Foundation awards scholarships for college students to attend graduate school in preparation for careers in government or elsewhere in public service. The activities of the Foundation are supported by a special trust fund in the US Treasury.
