Program Description:
Columbia College’s Euretta J. Kellett Fellowship has been awarded annually since 1932, and provides graduating seniors with funding for two years of study at either Cambridge University or Oxford University in the United Kingdom.  There are no restrictions as to academic field of study, but the proposed course of study (either a two-year degree or a succession of two related one-year degrees) must be available at Cambridge or Oxford, and an applicant’s undergraduate program must provide a solid foundation for his or her proposed studies.  

Each fellowship provides for direct payment of its recipient’s University and College fees at Cambridge or Oxford, plus a maintenance stipend from which he or she pays for travel and living expenses. 

Applicants must be graduating seniors in Columbia College at the time of application.  It is not required that applicants apply for admission to their proposed degree program(s) at Cambridge or Oxford by the time they submit their Kellett Fellowship applications, however eventual release of fellowship awards is contingent on acceptance to the proposed degree program(s).

Selection committees consider academic distinction and the suitability of the proposed course to be the most important considerations in evaluating candidates, but each candidate’s ability to contribute to his or her community in the U.K. will also be considered, as will the potential for the fellowship to be a truly broadening experience.

To apply: Complete and submit your online application by clicking "Start an Application" below and submitting no later than the deadline provided at 11:59pm EST. Additionally, please have your letters of recommendation submitted directly to no later than this deadline as well.
