In supporting students in pursuing meaningful research experiences, we are committed to helping students not only to think deeply and critically about complex issues but also to become engaged student scholars contributing to the production of new knowledge. Through research, students develop the intellectual building blocks for creative problem-solving, learning by doing.

Through guiding students and alumni in pursuing competitive national and international fellowships, we seek to help them imagine how they might develop and apply their academic strengths, passions, and talents in the service of the greater good. In the process, fellowship candidates deepen their expertise, refine their thinking, chart their futures, and learn how to tell their story.


Preparing a fellowship application “provides talented students with the space and resources to question, explore, and thrive.”
