The Watson Fellowship provides $28,000 to fund a self-driven year of global exploration and travel outside of the US after graduation. Projects can be about nearly anything meaningful, academic or personal, that intrigues and motivates you enough to spend a whole year pursuing that idea or issue around the globe.
ONFS is hosting two info sessions devoted to the Watson Fellowship in April; all interested students are invited to attend either or both.
- Monday, April 6 at 4:15pm in 201 McGregory — with special guest Sohee Ryuk ’15, who was recently named a 2015 Watson Fellow! Cookies from Jarcho.
- Sunday, April 19 at 3pm in the Batza Conference Room, 560 Case-Geyer — with special guest Bekah Ward ’13, who will talk about her adventures and travels in 2013-14 on her Watson Fellowship project, Unraveling bias and conviction: Roma cultural communication and activism. Coffee and pastries from Serendipity for your Sunday study break.
Members of the Class of 2016 are especially encouraged to attend one or both Watson info sessions, as you would need to apply in this upcoming application cycle. First-years and sophomores are also very welcome, as it’s never too early to start thinking about what you’d do on your year of global exploration!
