The Director of Fellowships assists students in identifying and applying for appropriate national and international scholarships at both the undergraduate and graduate level. Denison is proud of its many students and alumni who have won such awards.
To inform students about this service, the Fellowship Director sponsors information sessions, proposal writing workshops, and curriculum vitae assistance throughout the year. While some awards have a GPA requirement, many do not, and the College encourages all interested students to attend these sessions.
The Gilpatrick Center oversees the application process and in most cases even submits the application on behalf of the student and the institution. We also provide detailed, one-on-one assistance to students, including advice about applying and feedback on their application essays in addition to running workshops that help students identify their goals and appropriate fellowships to target.
We arrange on-campus interviews where necessary and coordinate the collection and submission of supporting materials (e.g., letters of recommendation).
