The Academic Fellowship Team serves as application specialists. We can help you to navigate eligibility criteria, understand the nuances of different application components, and provide feedback on application essays. Our team also has a network of partners and resources across campus that can provide additional support based on the type of opportunity you are seeking. Below are some of our regular campus partners, and we are always happy to make an e-introduction if you are interested in additional support.
The Writing Center helps all Brandeis community members on any writing project at any stage in the writing process. This includes writing for fellowship applications. Writing Consultants can provide the writing expertise to help you brainstorm structure and narrative, refine clarity and style, and provide proofreading strategies.
The Study Abroad Team provides excellent support for those looking for experiences abroad. They can help you think through where you want to travel, what program type is a fit for your goals, and funding opportunities. There are many options (research focused, language intensive, home-stays, internship-based), and the sooner you meet with an Advisor, the more time you have to review the options and pick the right choice for you.
The URCC is a centralized location for funding opportunities across all disciplines. The opportunities on their website are specifically for Brandeis undergraduate students, so we hope you will check their page early and often. You can reach out to them for more information about connecting with faculty mentors, research funding for summer or academic year projects, and advice on designing a feasible project.
Hiatt serves students and alumni through all stages of career development from exploration, to job searching, to career transitions. They have a number of resources for current students including funding for unpaid summer internships and a Career Closet that provides free professional attire. You can take home and keep up to four items per year, and there are staff members available to help you decode “professional dress” standards for interviews, networking events, internships, and jobs across different industries.
