The Henry Evans Traveling Fellowship supports purposeful travel in the year after graduation for new alumni to pursue imaginative non-coursework projects beyond New York City. Funding is intended to provide for travel and living expenses for the project and may not be used to pursue formal coursework, volunteer for a formal organization, or to participate in an internship program.

Fellowship awards support independently arranged travel experiences that provide recipients with experiences of a place and culture they might not gain simply as tourists, and have some connection to their undergraduate studies or interests. The proposed travel experience should have personal significance to you, and you should have the necessary background and skills to pursue the project successfully. Past Evans Fellows have pursued projects representing a great diversity of interests.

Current seniors in Columbia College are eligible, provided they are in good academic and disciplinary standing. One or two students receive awards each year, usually for no more than $5,000, for travel experiences lasting from three months to a full year, however there is no set time-frame the project must last for.

This fellowship was established in 1928 by the widow of Henry Evans in memory of her late husband, a member of the Columbia College Class of 1881.
