Special Eligibility Requirements:

Not all fellowships support all activities. Please read the description of each individual fellowship carefully as eligibility and restrictions will vary.

In applying for Yale College Postgraduate Fellowships, you may submit only one application which includes a proposal for one unique project. Your proposal may be eligible for one or more of the fellowships listed above. You are not required or expected to customize your proposal and application materials for each specific fellowship.

You may apply for only a single unique project for Yale College Postgraduate Fellowships. You may, however, apply for multiple fellowships using this proposal, and you need to submit only one set of application materials. You are not required or expected to customize your proposal and application materials for each specific fellowship.

Your project must begin BEFORE September 1 of the award year. If required, IRB approval must be secured prior to the start of your proposed research.


Restrictions to Use of Award:

All interested applicants must review the Yale University International Travel Policy. Projects in specific countries within approved regions may not be eligible for funding based on current State Department Warnings and the Yale University International Travel Policy.

Yale University policy requires that certain types of research projects involving human subjects be reviewed by an institutional review board (IRB) prior to the start of the study to ensure that the project meets University requirements and any applicable regulations. Click Here to see if your project needs to be reviewed (click on "student projects"), for advice on working with human subjects, and for more information about the process and requirements.

International students are not normally given grants for projects conducted in their home countries. If there is a question, make an appointment with a fellowships adviser.
