Applying to a fellowship or scholarship can seem overwhelming. We encourage you to reach out to us at any stage of the application process, whether you’re just starting your journey and want to learn how to become a good candidate or if you’re looking to submit an application.

If you are interested in applying to an award that requires a University of Rochester endorsement, you should begin working on the Fellowships Preliminary Questionnaire (FPQ). It is not necessary to complete the FPQ unless you want to pursue specific competitive opportunities that require formal University of Rochester endorsement or want to work intensively with the director of fellowships on other highly selective open-competition awards.

Please be advised that before we nominate you or endorse your candidacy for a fellowship competition, we will perform a conduct and academic honesty check to confirm that you are in good disciplinary and academic standing.
