Postgraduate Scholarships and Fellowships

Once you've graduated there are still many opportunities for you to see the world, challenge your intellect, and do something meaningful. The federal government and many private organizations sponsor a number of prestigious scholarships and fellowships to study, research, or work/teach abroad after graduation. Each year an increasing number of Drake students are applying for these funds; in fact, Drake is one of nation’s top producers of Fulbright Scholars among master’s institutions. Karen Leroux, associate professor of history, is the designated faculty member available to assist students with their applications. Contact her with any questions at karen.leroux@drake.edu or 271-2709.
