Post-Graduate Scholarship and Fellowship Opportunities: Drake students have the opportunity to apply for several different scholarships and fellowships, including the Marshall, the Rhodes, the Carnegie and the Truman, among others. One of the most prestigious post-graduate scholarships available is the Fulbright Scholarship. Students who receive a Fulbright Scholarship are federally funded to spend up to one year of postgraduate study teaching or conducting research in a foreign country. Eleanor Zeff, associate professor in the Department of Political Science, has been the Fulbright program adviser since 2003, and more than 25 Drake students have received Fulbright awards during that time. Drake has produced many Fulbright scholars in the past 10 years and has been named a “Top Producing” university among Master’s granting institutions four times since 2006.
