A unit of the Office of Global Programs, the OGP Fellowships Office supports Columbia undergraduates in exploring and applying for internal, national, and international fellowships. We inform students, faculty, and staff about the full range of these opportunities and help students determine which programs best meet their intellectual, professional, and personal goals. Our services also help students:
- represent themselves at their best throughout the application process,
- develop confidence in articulating and pursuing their aspirations, and
- explore other avenues to achieving goals they discover are truly meaningful.
Applying for fellowships isn’t easy. It requires thoughtful self-awareness, a lot of hard work, and acceptance of the long odds facing every applicant. Even so, the application process offers certain benefits in improved critical thinking, analytical writing, and oral presentation skills—all of which can be usefully applied in nearly any future pursuit.
Whatever questions you may have about fellowships, we’re eager to help you explore the possibilities they represent and encourage you in the application process! (Click “Fellowship Deadlines” below for OGP fellowship competition due dates for 2014-2015.)
