Nationally Competitive Fellowships
Fellowships are short term, nationally competitive, and funded opportunities to do something exceptional. Applying for fellowships can be challenging and rewarding on its own, but winning one can be the opportunity of a lifetime. Fellowships can enable you to do all kinds of things, including teaching in a foreign country, conducting cutting edge research, studying abroad, or paying for education. As a Cal State East Bay student, you are well equipped to compete for these awards due to your academic accomplishments, leadership experiences, and future goals. This page has links to information for specific fellowship, scholarship, and grant opportunities.
