Fellowships Requiring Institutional Endorsement

The fellowships and scholarships listed below require St. Olaf’s endorsement of the student’s application as part of the application process. Therefore, institutional pre-screening is required for these opportunities, and usually the institutional deadline will be earlier than the national deadline.  You are also encouraged to review the list of direct apply fellowships (i.e., meaning no institutional nomination is required) at Direct Apply Fellowships & Scholarships 

Make an appointment with Grant Eustice through Ole Career Central to learn more about the following opportunities.
