Graduate Scholarships and Fellowships
International opportunities don’t need to end when you graduate. Apply for one of these programs to continue a path of life-long international learning!
All the opportunities listed are slightly different, but most begin with an internal review process here on campus followed by a nationwide selection process.
Given the competitive nature of these awards and the thoughtful preparation required for proposals, prospective applicants should begin working on these applications in the summer (or even during the spring) preceding their senior year and finish applying by September 15 before you graduate.
Graduate Work, Internships and Volunteering Abroad
After graduation, consider working abroad for several months or even several years! Jobs can be menial or service-oriented: pub work in Ireland, picking grapes in Greece, or working on a cruise ship. Career-training jobs are more difficult to come by and involve a much greater effort on your part.
Teaching abroad is one of the most accessible and popular options for paid or inexpensive long-term stays overseas. However, this means that the higher-paying jobs, arranged in advance, are also more competitive. Typical destinations include Spain, China, Japan, South Korea, Eastern Europe, and Latin America. Proficiency in the local language is rarely a requirement, although it may be helpful.
