Fellowships and Scholarships

Find Your Success

"I am excited to learn as much as possible through my time in the lab, taking graduate level classes, and interacting with cancer patients in Austria." — David Berger '19, Fulbright recipient

Opportunities for every discipline

Fellowships and scholarships are opportunities that are competitive on a national and international level. Open to students from every academic background, these awards include language immersion programs, professional development workshops, internships abroad,  and funding for graduation study. Through workshops, information sessions, and one-on-one appointments, we’ll help you find the opportunity that’s just right for you.


Do Cornell students win these?

Yes. In the last eight years, 16 Cornell students have won Fulbright awards and seven have won Gilman scholarships.

“I’ve wanted to go to Madagascar for as long as I can remember; it’s a place where my passions collide in a spectacular way. This trip is pretty much my dream come true, and I cannot thank everyone at Cornell who has supported me, especially Laura Farmer and my advisor Professor Steven Sacks.”

— Gilman Scholar, Talitha McGuire '19
