Instructions for Use
The easiest way to navigate each table is through applying filters. Filters can either be added within specific columns (by selecting the drop-down menu) or all together with the Filter button at the top (listed under the tabs).
In setting filters, users should balance specificity with broader requirements. For example, if a user must carry out their fellowship in China, then they should select “China” in “Location for Fellowship.” However, they should also select “Unspecified/Open,” as fellowships for which they might be eligible may permit being in China without that being an absolute requirement (such as with the Fulbright). Similarly, with “Discipline,” a user in the literature field will want to select “Literature” from the drop down menu, but they will also want to select “Humanities (general)” and “Unspecified/Open.”
**Users should always select “Unspecified/Open” or “Unspecified/Other” in all filtered categories in order to receive the maximum number of relevant responses**
Non-US citizens will particularly want to filter by National Eligibility, again being sure to include “Unspecified/Open.” The category “International (w/ restrictions)” means that most citizenships are permitted but one or two specific ones may be prohibited (this is particularly the case with government-sponsored fellowships, which may block citizens of that country).
Users may also want to filter by academic status, especially those who will be PhD candidates (here represented as “ABD”) by the time of the fellowship’s start date. MA students may also find this helpful for finding fellowships for which they are eligible.
If you would like to submit a fellowship for inclusion in the table, please use the Fellowship Submission Form.
