Student Fellowships

Main page content

Student Fellowships in the Office of Global Affairs is currently closed to the public, but we continue to provide services during regular business hours through email, phone and virtual meetings.

Are you a motivated student with ambition and passion for what you do? Interested in transformative opportunities such as research, language study, service, mentorship, networking, or travel?

Then you're in the right place. Student Fellowships, within the Office of Global Affairs, is here to support engaged students like you in their applications to nationally competitive fellowships as well as some UW-wide opportunities. 


If you can't make the live virtual workshops, check out the Student Fellowships YouTube channel for video tutorials instead!
