The Office of Pre-Professional Advising and Major Fellowships helps students explore post-graduate opportunities and develop strong applications for fellowships, scholarships, or professional studies in law, medicine, and other fields.  We help students:

  • Uncover possibilities and develop plans for post-graduate study
  • Identify fellowships, scholarships, and professional schools best suited to their goals
  • Prepare competitive proposals and applications, including personal statements and research interests

The office also coordinates several scholarship opportunities for Lawrence students to pursue research, internships, or other activities.

Post-Graduate Fellowships and Scholarships

Major fellowships are competitive awards that fund graduate study, teaching abroad or in the United States, research, federal employment, or public service. Our office can guide you through the process and help you develop an application that you're proud of!
