Fellowships are internal or external awards that are intended to support a student in full-time course study. They are awarded based on your scholastic ability and the promise of your academic achievement. Fellowships are competitive awards that provide financial support without associated teaching or research responsibilities. Applying for fellowships can provide you with professional development skills. In addition to financial support, earning an external fellowship exemplifies excellence in research, writing and scholarship.
