Opportunities By Discipline

The Emmanuel College Fellowship Committee encourages and assists students as they apply for nationally competitive scholarships and fellowships including the Rhodes, Fulbright, Marshall, Boren and Goldwater. These fellowships finance opportunities to study, teach, research and/or travel abroad.

Below is a partial list of scholarship and fellowship opportunities. These are nationally competitive awards and require a great deal of preparation. Students should check the website for requirements and level of competitiveness, discuss their eligibility and potential with their Department Chairs or Academic Advisors and then contact the Emmanuel representative.
