We support Columbia undergraduates and alumni in exploring and applying for internal, national, and international fellowships. We inform students, faculty, and staff about a full range of opportunities and help students determine which programs best meet their intellectual, professional, and personal goals.


Research allows you to build relationships with faculty; explore areas of interest; prepare for a senior thesis; prepare for graduate school; gain new knowledge in a topic of interest; engage in exciting projects during the summer and/or academic year; gain tools that will serve you well as you transition out of college.
