Academic Awards and Fellowships

Students on Campus

HWS students regularly win prestigious fellowships that fund graduate study, international travel, and unique experiences. In two of the past three years HWS has been named a top producer of winners of the US Fulbright Student Awards, and students have won the Barry M. Goldwater Excellence in Science Award, the Rhodes Scholarship, the Marshall Scholarship, the Morris K. Udall Undergraduate Scholarship, and the National Science Foundation Graduate Fellowship.

The HWS Fellowships Advisor works closely with students and alumni to help them identify opportunities and develop strong applications to these nationally and internationally competitive programs.
