Find Fellowships

CURF’s Fellowships Directory is a tool for Penn students and alumni to familiarize themselves with a broad range of fellowship opportunities. Keep in mind, it is not an exhaustive list. Fellowships staff are happy to assist you in applying for virtually any fellowship. Here is a pdf of a 4-year overview of some of the fellowships available to undergraduates.

If you are (or soon will be) an active applicant for any fellowship, sign up for CURF's Mailing List for weekly updates on fellowships and related opportunities and enroll in CURF's Fellowship Resources canvas site to access resources for preparing for fellowships.
