The Fellowships and Awards office works with Oberlin College students and alumni interested in applying for nationally competitive programs in a broad range of fields, from physical science to music performance. In addition to supporting current students' applications, we also support alumni—three, five, or more years postgraduation.

Check out two tools that can help you find fellowships and scholarships and keep track of application deadlines:

1. The University of Connecticut's Office of National Scholarships & Fellowships offers a list of major awards in order of application deadline. (Keep in mind that this is a tool to help you get started; Oberlin's own internal deadlines will be slightly different.)

2. The University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign offers a Fellowship Finder that lets you search a database of more than 1,100 awards by criteria such as field, stage of study, award type, U. S. citizenship status, and eligibility.

You can find more details about many of the fellowships and scholarships available to you here. If you identify an opportunity that is not listed on our website, tell us about it and let us help you apply.

Watch for announcements and information meetings throughout the year, and do visit the fellowships office just to get acquainted and to let us know about your plans and goals. E-mail Nick Petzak for an appointment: npetzak@oberlin.edu.
