Wellesley College Alumni Scholarship

Wellesley College offers a number of fellowships and scholarships for graduate study or research that are open to graduating seniors and Wellesley alumnae. Two of these awards are open to women graduates of any American institution. Awards are usually made to applicants currently enrolled in or applying to graduate school for the following year. Preference in all cases, except for the Peggy Howard Fellowship, will be given to applicants who have not held one of these awards previously. Decisions will be based on merit and need, with the exception of the Knafel and Trustee awards, which are determined on merit alone. U.S. tax laws apply. Please note that the awards are for study at institutions other than Wellesley College and are open to all nationalities.

Please note the Margaret Freeman Bowers Fellowship, Horton-Hallowell Fellowship, and Fanny Bullock Workman Fellowship.
