In addition to the numerous fellowships Wellesley alums and students frequently win from outside funding sources, Wellesley offers a number of fellowships for its graduates in many stages of life, from recent grads to mid-career alums. These fellowships are made possible by the generosity of many donors to support alumnae education and personal growth after commencement. This year’s awardees will travel, teach, and study in cities around the world. Congratulations, fellows!
