*Applicants must go through Colgate’s required campus review and application/nomination process, all of which is overseen by ONFS. The deadlines noted for opportunities in italics, therefore, are internal campus deadlines.
**Only current students must secure a campus nomination and must therefore submit complete materials by the campus deadline noted here. Alumni apply directly and do not receive a university nomination.
See the Fellowship Listing page on the ONFS website for further information about these awards, including eligibility criteria and links to the foundation websites.
