Our Philosophy

The Office of Fellowships takes a holistic, pedagogical approach to advising.

We empower our advisees across all backgrounds and identities to discern and pursue their goals with guidance from an expansive network of mentors—whether or not they file an application, let alone win a fellowship.

We facilitate connections among faculty, students, staff, and alumni to ensure our advisees build the strongest possible network at Northwestern and that they understand how to maintain those relationships after they graduate.
