The Euretta J. Kellett Fellowship, awarded annually since 1932, provides Columbia College graduating seniors with funding for one or two years of study in any field at either Cambridge or Oxford. The proposed course of study can be either a one-year, two-year, or two related one-year degrees. Your undergraduate program must provide a solid foundation for your proposed course of study.
Selection committees consider academic distinction and the suitability of the proposed course to be the most important considerations in evaluating candidates, but each candidate’s ability to contribute to his or her community in the U.K. will also be considered, as will the potential for the fellowship to be a truly broadening experience.
Each fellowship provides for direct payment of its recipient’s University and College fees at Cambridge or Oxford, plus a stipend for travel and living expenses.
Recipients of the Kellett must take up their fellowship for the academic year immediately following their graduation from the College. No deferrals will be granted.
Current seniors in Columbia College are eligible, provided they are in good academic and disciplinary standing.
Candidates must also separately apply for admission to their department at Oxford or Cambridge. The academic program deadlines vary at Oxford and Cambridge. It is encouraged, but not required, to apply for the earliest deadline available. Fellowship awards are contingent on your acceptance to the proposed degree program. The Kellett will only be awarded to students who take up the award for the next academic year. No deferrals will be granted.
