2020-21 Scholarships Calendar

Upcoming Events

Fulbright and other Post-Baccalaureate Fellowship Programs: TBA

Application Deadlines

Note that local campus deadlines are generally one month before these final program deadlines. A number of scholarship and fellowship programs require either institutional approval or an on-campus interview process, so students seeking these awards must apply through the Geneseo Scholarships/Fellowships Committee, unless it is indicated below that a university endorsement is not necessary. In that case you are encouraged but not required to work with the Fellowships office on your application. Geneseo alumni are welcome to contact the Fellowships office to apply for eligible fellowships.
