Weekly Fellowships Series 18-19

Mengjia Luo

Students are encouraged to attend the weekly Fellowships Series (full schedule here: https://citizenscholars.virginia.edu/fellowship-series).

Many of the deadlines for fourth year opportunities are early in the fall. The Office of Citizen Scholar Development provides information and advising going into and throughout the summer so that students have the time and support necessary to discern which fellowship(s) fit them the best and to put together the best application possible.

The Fulbright US Student Award is one that every student (US citizen) should definitely consider. Students can pursue further study, research, arts projects, teaching, and more.
