Many Catholic University students continue their studies or professional training with funding won via fellowships, scholarships, and grant competitions. The Center for Academic and Career Success offers Fellowships Advising for all parts of the application process for nationally competitive awards. Our office also guides applicants through the University endorsement process, which some funding programs require.

For more information about these individual programs and the specific application process at Catholic University, please follow the links below. Interested in applying? Fill out our Intake Form (see sidebar) and contact cua-fellowships@cua.edu to schedule your Fellowships Advising appointment.
