These opportunities are tenable during your undergraduate career (such as study abroad, summer internships, fellowships, and scholarships), as well as post-graduation, with opportunities ranging from graduate school and long-term internships to working abroad.
Upcoming Fellowship Events
50 School of General Studies students were recently named as 2020-21 fellows -- three of these fellowship winners are the first GS students to receive their respective awards.
Since 1977, this prestigious honor has been awarded in recognition of students’ exemplary public service work and leadership and offers students like Daniels support for graduate or professional school in preparation for a career in public service. Daniels, who enrolled at GS in the fall of 2019, following his own incarceration, has become a prominent advocate for criminal justice reform through his work with the Columbia University Center for Justice, Columbia University School of Social Work, and beyond.
Earlier this month, three GS alumni were selected to join the highly-selective Schwarzman Scholars Class of 2021. Only around three percent of this year’s applicants, which include students from 41 countries and 108 universities, were accepted to the graduate fellowship program.
The GS Fellowships Office works collaboratively with the Undergraduate Research & Fellowships office to give you as much help with your applications as you wish to receive. We make a point of listening with an open mind and of helping our students pursue just those fellowship opportunities that are right for them.
