Advising for External Fellowships & Prestigious Awards

The Dean & Director of Internships, Externships, Fellowships coordinates Dickinson’s efforts to recruit and nurture potential applicants for fellowships and prestigious awards. Near the end of the fall semester, the Dean of Academic Advising will ask First Year Seminar instructors/advisors to identify 2-4 outstanding students in each seminar, whether because they are articulate or because they can think beyond the obvious (“outside of the box”). The Center for Advising, Internships & Lifelong Career Development will invite these students to information sessions about prestigious awards and fellowships and continue to offer support over the full four years.

Strong candidates will distinguish themselves by pursuing ambitious opportunities over the course of their college careers-both inside and outside the classroom. Academic excellence, strong leadership, and a commitment to service are important qualities for many prestigious awards. Students by thus consider participating in “alternative” spring breaks and other volunteer activities, internships and research, and-if they choose to study abroad-they should take full advantage of the opportunity to engage in rigorous research and build networks with scholars in their chosen fields.
