Distinguished Fellowships

Welcome to the Distinguished Fellowships page!

At CAPD, we help MIT students identify, explore, and apply to competitive domestic and international fellowships, and we guide you through every part of the journey. Our dedicated fellowship advisors provide the personalized advice and deep expertise required to compete for these prestigious awards.

If you have a strong GPA and are looking for funding for graduate school or independent research, consider applying for a distinguished fellowship.

For many of these awards, MIT selects or endorses students through an internal process before the national deadline. Some fellowships are only available for U.S. citizens. If you are interested in any of these scholarships, contact fellowships@mit.edu.

Explore scholarship websites here to learn about eligibility, selection criteria, application materials, and deadlines. And, remember to start exploring early to build a strong application.

The Distinguished Fellowships Office works only with currently enrolled or alumni MIT students applying for competitive national and international awards. If you are looking for funding for MIT graduate studies, contact the graduate admissions office (oge@mit.edu).

Internal Applicants:

If you are considering applying for the internal nomination process for the Rhodes, Marshall, and Mitchell Scholarships please complete our internal application. Our deadline is Tuesday June 6th at 5:00pm ET.

If you are considering applying for the internal nomination process for the Churchill Scholarship, please complete our internal application. Our deadline is Tuesday July 11th at 5:00pm ET.

If you are interested in applying for the Fulbright Scholarship, please book an appointment with Julia Mongo (jmongo@mit.edu) to discuss our process for supporting applicants.

If you have any questions, please reach out to our staff (fellowships@mit.edu).
