Fellowships and Travel Grants

While the term "fellowship" is used to represent a variety of opportunities, generally fellowships are short-term opportunities lasting from a few months to several years; focus on the professional development of the fellow; and are sponsored by a specific organization seeking to expand leadership in their field.

Fellowship programs can be designed to support a range of activities including graduate study in a specific field, research to advance work on a particular issue, developing a new community-based organization or initiative, training and reflection to support the fellow's growth, opportunities to further explore a particular field of work. It is important to plan ahead when considering applying for a fellowship and to discuss with your departments leadership and administration, especially if it may involve time away during the academic year.
