CURF’s Fellowships Directory is a tool for Penn students and alumni to familiarize themselves with a broad range of fellowship opportunities. Keep in mind, it is not an exhaustive list. Fellowships staff are happy to assist you in applying for virtually any fellowship. Here is a pdf of a 4-year overview of some of the fellowships available to undergraduates.
If you are (or soon will be) an active applicant for any fellowship, sign up for CURF's Mailing List for weekly updates on fellowships and related opportunities and enroll in CURF's Fellowship Resources canvas site to access resources for preparing for fellowships.
For applicants interested in graduate study in the United Kingdom, please see the Identifying UK Graduate Programs & Funding page and use the UK government's Research Excellence Framework 2021 ranking of UK graduate programs to identify the strongest and most appropriate UK graduate degree programs that fit your interests as determined by UK faculty.
