Alumni are strongly encouraged to work closely with CCSA staff on national scholarships and fellowships that are open to eligible candidates post-graduation from UChicago. In some cases, alumni are required to secure endorsement from the university regardless of graduation date. If you intend to apply for any national scholarship or fellowship program, carefully review their age restrictions as some have them while others do not. Additionally, if you have formally matriculated into a graduate program, you are required to apply through your new institution and are encouraged to take advantage of their resources. If you are a graduate student at the University of Chicago, you should contact the Graduate Fellowships Office.
