Competitive Fellowships

The Office of Competitive Fellowships assists students and alumni of the Mount community with the application process for highly competitive and distinguished awards, such as the Fulbright, Marshall, Rhodes, Goldwater, and Gates Cambridge Scholarship. These awards typically fund a number of opportunities, often in an international setting, including graduate education, research and experiential learning, nonprofit or political service, and foreign language study.

Distinguished fellowships and scholarships provide unequalled experiences for personal and professional growth, and provide students a unique way to live into the university mission of graduating students “who see and seek to resolve the problems facing humanity.”
