Wheaton Competitive Fellowship Application Process

These steps should be followed when applying for a fellowship or scholarship that includes an on campus advisor.  These are Goldwater, Boren, DAAD, Fulbright, Gates, Harvey, Lily, Marshall, Rhodes, Truman and Udall. 

  1. A Curriculum Vita (CV) listing education, work experience, extracurricular activities, achievements and awards, etc.  This should include your GPA.
  2. The name, email address and phone number of a Wheaton professor who would be willing to give a verbal endorsement of your application.
  3. A 1000 word personal statement in which you outline your reasons for wanting to apply for a competitive scholarship (you may name a specific scholarship or discuss these opportunities in more general terms). This should encompass both your qualifications for what you want to do, as well as your vision of future work.  You can consult the Wheaton Competitive Scholarship website for links to resources that will help you think about the personal statement.

Send this as an email attachment to campus contact by the deadline on the website.
