Fellowships

The Center for Undergraduate Research and Fellowships serves as the University of Pennsylvania's information hub and primary support office for Penn students and alumni considering applying for major grants and fellowships. CURF aims to demystify these opportunities to help undergraduate and graduate students and alumni determine the most appropriate awards for which to apply. CURF’s searchable Fellowships Directory allows you to search for opportunities based on your student or alumni status. See details of fellowship eligibility and brief descriptions.

If you are (or soon will be) an active applicant for any fellowship, please sign up for the CURF Mailing List to receive regular updates on fellowships and related opportunities and request access to our Fellowships Canvas site.

Please note that CURF advisors remain available and are continuing to advise students and alumni considering fellowships. In light of COVID-19, advising is currently occurring remotely.

Potential applicants for fellowships are invited to learn more about fellowships by viewing the Fellowships 101 presentation and by completing this form to request access to Penn's Canvas site for General Fellowship applicants. Once you determine which fellowships you wish to explore, please use the Calendly link on the bottom of the bio pages of Lauren Orr or Wallace Genser to schedule an appointment.
