Post-Graduate Opportunities

Moving beyond Central College, a wide world awaits. As you consider your future beyond Central College, we hope you will avail yourself of this resource to explore the variety of post-graduate opportunities. These resources include information about nationally competitive fellowships, as well as more local opportunities. We invite you to explore these links and contact us at gradfellowships@central.edu  for more information. We will recruit and work with students and alumni through the application process, which can provide the opportunities to focus on independent research, spend time overseas, or attend graduate school.

The key to applying for and successfully obtaining one of these competitive fellowships is planning. Deadlines often come early in and successful applicants should work with their academic advisors, Class Deans, and the Graduate Fellowships Faculty Fellow to develop an application and portfolio. Even as a first year student, it is not too early to begin exploring opportunities you may wish to pursue in the future. As a sophomore or junior, you can begin working on your applications to launch you into your life beyond Central.
