The Smith College Fellowships & Postgraduate Scholarships Program advises Smith students and recent alumnae who wish to apply for competitive national and international fellowships. Our approach—informing, advising, encouraging, and working with candidates and their mentors—adopts the “by design” approach of the Lazarus Center for Career Development. Fellowship applications aren’t developed in isolation. They reflect your best ideas of what you want to do and why. They also reflect who you are and what you’ve achieved. They reflect your values and capture some of your dreams.
