Summer 2019 Fellowship Opportunities

Richter Fellowship

This award supports students to take independent study and research.  It cannot be for mere travel, or for a program of work, however valuable.  An internship, for example with a government agency, is a valid use only if there is a significant component of study or research, which must be carefully identified.


Bergin Fellowship

Established by the Mott Woolley Council in 1988, the Bergin Fellowship is awarded to an underclass student of Timothy Dwight College for summer study, an internship, or work experience.

Chubb Student Fellowship

The Chubb Student Fellowship is designed to provide equal opportunity for Timothy Dwight students to undertake public service or leadership development in any professional field, though government and public affairs will take priority.

Mellon Senior Research Grant

The Mellon Senior Research Grant provides funding to offset the costs associated with a senior research project or senior essay.
