Each year, the Lisska Center for Intellectual Engagement helps hundreds of students and recent alumni identify and apply for nationally and internationally competitive fellowships and other awards for a wide range of summer, undergraduate, and postgraduate opportunities.
In collaboration with the Director of Foundation and Corporate Relations, we also work with Denison faculty members applying for individual fellowships and grants.
Mentorship forms the core of our efforts to promote intellectual engagement, academic achievement, and postgraduate success. We provide intensive one-on-one support to help applicants identify appropriate awards, tailor multi-year academic and extracurricular plans, write their application essays, and assemble competitive applications.
We encourage all motivated students to schedule an individual appointment and/or attend our information sessions. While some highly-competitive awards have a minimum GPA requirement, many do not. We have a strong record of success: since 1989, Denison students and recent alumni have won 188 fellowships. In a typical year, 15-25% of our applicants win an award.
