Fellowships

A national leader in academic fellows and scholarships — and a top producer of Fulbright students and scholars — the University of Richmond connects Spiders to resources and experiences that go well beyond the classroom. These often come through a fellowship or scholarship, providing opportunities for national and international study, research, and service.

UR’s professors and alumni network provide a great support system for making the jump to life after graduation. In many cases your network is your greatest asset, and my UR connections have been invaluable in my career so far.
