RIT students and alumni with excellent academic records should consider applying for a competitive fellowship or scholarship.
There are a number of independent scholarships or fellowships available for study, travel or research abroad. Scholarships (generally for undergraduates) and Fellowships (generally for graduate students or recent graduates) can turn the dream of living abroad into a reality.
International scholarships and fellowships tend to have strict eligibility requirements. For example you must be studying in certain countries, certain languages or for a minimum amount of time. They are also often competitive and have EARLY deadlines.
Our Office offers advice and support to current RIT students and alumni interested in applying for a variety of fellowships. We are also available to help you with essay and resume reviews for your application.
The application process for each fellowship is slightly different. If you don't see the process for your fellowship listed and have questions, please contact Jenny Sullivan at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (585) 475-3224 to set up an appointment.
