Undergraduate Opportunities

Many nationally competitive fellowships support semester- or year-long study abroad or contribute to undergraduate tuition fees. There are also a number of prestigious fellowships for graduate school that students must apply for during their junior year. (Note: Students seeking financial aid for Denison should contact the financial aid office.)

The Lisska Center works closely with the Center for Global Programs to help students identify and apply for these opportunities and much more.
