Watson Fellowship


The Thomas J. Watson Fellowship is a one-year grant for purposeful, independent exploration outside the United States, awarded to graduating seniors nominated by one of 41 partner institutions

This prestigious fellowship enables exceptionally promising liberal arts college graduates to undertake a “Wanderjahr” - a year of independent study and travel following graduation. Instead of enrolling at universities overseas, Fellows design and pursue travel and research projects reflecting their own abiding interest. 

Who can apply: Seniors who wish to pursue a personal yet translatable project after graduation
