You can still get individual advising on awards and help with applications! Make an appointment by going to Handshake and selecting a virtual fellowships appointment, or email director Jennifer Locke to connect via BlueJeans, Skype, phone, or email.

The National and International Fellowships Office connects current Oxy students and alumni to non-Oxy sources of funding that support a range of activities suitable for a wide variety of majors, personal goals and professional interests. It provides guidance to those pursuing merit-based awards and promotes the College’s proud tradition of extended, in-depth scholarship.

The office offers full support to students and alumni throughout the entire application process. The director makes individualized advising appointments, provides application feedback, conducts application workshops and information sessions, and provides comprehensive interview preparation.  

Foundations and governments fund a wide range of domestic and international activities including: 

  • Leadership training
  • Public service experience
  • Independent applied projects
  • Academic experiences
  • Study abroad
  • Research
  • Professional development
  • Graduate school
  • Language learning
  • Teaching 

It is never too early to set up an appointment to discuss these enriching, valuable opportunities.  You may be eligible for a fellowship from your very first semester at Oxy until several years after you graduate.
