Getting started

Information Sessions are a great way to learn more about the range of fellowship opportunities available to Brandeis students. Before you begin the process of applying for a specific fellowship, we recommend that you first attend one of the information sessions for that program.  If your schedule conflicts with the upcoming information sessions, feel free to contact Meredith Monaghan, Director of Academic Fellowships, to set up an individual appointment (

Info Sessions


Information sessions are held throughout the academic year according to the calendar of available fellowship opportunities.  We recommend that all students who are interested in pursuing a specific fellowship attend an info session.  Your questions will be answered, and you can better assess if the program suits your interests.  

Once you have attended an information session, or if you cannot attend one for some reason, you are encouraged to meet with Meredith Monaghan, the Director of Academic Fellowships, for further discussion of your interests, the range of opportunities you should consider, as well as the steps involved for each application. 

Information Sessions for the Fulbright program will be scheduled for early September; for the Truman, Carnegie, and Goldwater for mid-September. Check back here in August for specific dates and times. For all other fellowships, please contact Meredith Monaghan directly (

Upcoming Information Sessions

Come meet the Fellowship Advising Team and learn more about opportunities available to current Brandeis students and recent alumni. These sessions are open to all class years.

We are currently working on our Fall schedule. Check back soon to see the list of information sessions for Fall 2014.
