Select Graduate School Fellowships (Various Deadlines)

Pickering Fellowship (Upcoming Info Sessions) 
The Thomas R. Pickering Fellowship Program provides graduate students with financial support, mentoring and professional development to prepare them academically and professionally for a career with the U.S. Department of State.  U.S. citizens who are seeing admission to a U.S. graduate school beginning in Fall 2018 in an academic field relevant to the work of the Foreign Service (public policy, international affairs, public administration, business, economics, political science, sociology, or foreign languages) are eligible. Awardees must attend a June 2018 orientation in Washington D.C. and be prepared to enter the Foreign Service in Summer 2020.

Other Scholarships for Students Applying to Graduate School (Various Deadlines)
Most of these scholarships are not open for direct application - rather, you submit your application to UW, which reviews candidates and then forwards their nominees to the respective granting organization.  Please be aware that they are quite competitive; I recommend that you meet with a representative from the Undergraduate Academic Awards Office for more information and to discuss your plans before beginning the application process. 

Beinecke Scholarship, for students planning to pursue a PhD or terminal Masters in the arts, humanities, or social sciences. $4000 initial award with an additional $30,000 while attended an accredited graduate program. More information:

Marshall Scholarship, for students interested in studying at any university in the United Kingdom. The scholarship covers tuition/fees, airfare, and living expenses for two years of study in any discipline. More information:
