International Studies

Institutional deadlines are earlier than foundation deadlines so that the Director of Fellowships and  faculty advisors can review or process applications. Some foundations, such as the Truman Foundation, require that a university nominating committee meet to review applications prior to submission to the foundation.

Some fellowships are restricted to U.S. Citizens or Permanent Residents. Many Mason students are not U.S. citizens, while many fellowship programs are limited to U.S. citizens. Dr. Camille Stillwell, Director of the DC Workforce Development Administration, has compiled a list of fellowships (pdf) that do not require U.S. citizenship.
