Explore scholarship and fellowship opportunities for research and discovery

Syracuse University is gearing up for the next round of Fulbright applications facilitated through the Center for Fellowship and Scholarship Advising (CFSA).  Syracuse University was recently named as one of the top U.S. colleges and universities (doctoral institutions) that produced the most 2020-21 Fulbright U.S. students.

“This distinction was earned by our extraordinary students and alumni, and was facilitated by the University’s commitment to preparing them to be agents of positive change in the world,” says CFSA Director Jolynn Parker. “It is truly a privilege to work with our Fulbright applicants because they have such vision and dedication.”

Students early in their careers are also eligible for several awards, including the Gilman Scholarship for study abroad, the Fulbright Summer Institutes in the UK, and the Critical Language Scholarship funding cultural and language immersion abroad.

Winners of these prestigious awards receive financial support, extraordinary experience and study opportunities in their fields, networking opportunities, and the honor and recognition that accompany the scholarships.

CFSA staff offers a number of services to its students, including one-on-one advising, interest sessions on specific scholarships, writing workshops for applicants preparing essays, and interview preparation.
