From First Drafts to Final Deadlines

How We Can Help

It is never too early to meet with one of our team members. From discussing a first-year undergraduate's dreams to a doctoral student's funding needs, we match aspirations with foundations. The Office of Fellowships offers resources for Northwestern students and alumni to conceptualize and achieve their ambitions with the support of external funding.

If you have any questions about services, please contact our program assistant, Ivona Pankova, or call 847-491-2617.

Services Offered

We tailor our services to each student. Here are some of the ways we can help you:

  • Provide support and mentorship through the application process
  • Help you search for fellowships that match your interests and qualifications
  • Match you with mentors who have won fellowships that you are pursuing
  • Provide writing help, interview prep and access to essays written by previous winners

The Office of Fellowships invites students and alums to attend our info sessions.

Current students can also access our online library of past winning essays with their NetID and password. Alums should contact Ivona Pankova to be granted access.

Please note that the Office of Fellowships specializes in external awards. For internal awards, including the Franke Undergraduate Fellowship for Innovative Humanities Scholarship and the Presidential Fellowship for PhD candidates, consult with your faculty mentors and visit Northwestern's Writing Place.
