Financial Aid Distinguished Fellowships

Distinguished Fellowships

Fellowships are competitive awards available for undergraduate and graduate study. These awards are administered through the Office of Fellowship Advising, not Westminster's Financial Aid Office. In addition to an outstanding academic record, distinguished scholarship applicants should show strong evidence of leadership and a commitment to public service.

The Office of Fellowship Advising

The Office of Fellowship Advising was created to provide a central location for information on distinguished, prestigious, merit-based scholarships for Westminster College students. For further information, please contact Westminster's Fellowships Director.



The following scholarship/fellowship information has been edited from Bohlman, Paul A., and Adonica Lui. The Harvard College Guide to Grants

12 ed. Cambridge: Harvard University, 2003. The Guide has a larger more detailed description and should be consulted if you have questions, or are looking for suggestions.
