The Mount Office of National Fellowships

Fellowship advisingThe Mount Office of National Fellowships is available to assist students in applying for external, nationally-competitive fellowships, scholarships and awards.

Students interested in becoming candidates for awards and grants should review all available programs and acceptance guideline links carefully. The office will take an active role in seeking out truly outstanding students to apply for these awards. We look forward to discussing with you which nationally competitive fellowships and scholarships might be a good fit for your interests and background.

Preparing and Applying

In association with the director of the Career Center, we will help you with the preparation of your application, keep you on track during the process, and keep you aware of the various application deadlines.

The Process:

  1. Preparing the Application Letter: We will help you craft your application letter based on the specifications of the desired fellowship.

  2. Preparing a Résumé: The Career Center offers a wide range of skill building workshops and programs, such as résumé writing or interview preparation, throughout the year.

  3. Letters of Recommendation: We will help you identify the people to write recommendation letters for you.

  4. Preparing for an interview: The Career Center runs a "mock interview," designed to provide you with the opportunity to practice your interview skills in a face-to-face interview situation. The session will enable you to observe your verbal and nonverbal communication on videotape and to receive constructive feedback from a Career Center staff member or guest interviewer.
