Global Fellowships & Awards

Grinnell College students and alumni apply for and receive national, merit-based fellowships and awards at exceptionally high rates. This success speaks to the power of the individually advised curriculum combined with strategic cocurricular and extracurricular involvement in service-learning, internships, independent study and research, and more. National fellowship screening committees for competitive awards are more easily able to identify students of exceptional promise when applicants have already taken advantage of the wealth of opportunities afforded to them as Grinnell students.

The Center for Careers, Life, and Service administers many of the College’s fellowship and award application processes, including those for select national, merit-based awards and for certain Grinnell-specific awards. Please feel free to contact the Ann Landstrom for advising and information about the awards listed here—or about any other competitive scholarships or fellowships for which Grinnell students or alumni may be eligible.
