Fellowships Advising & Study Abroad

Our goal is to help Caltech undergraduate and graduate students seek out information on, and apply for a wide variety of highly competitive fellowships for study both in the U.S. and abroad.

Lauren Stolper, the Director of Fellowships Advising and Study Abroad (FASA), and Katherine Montgomery, the Assistant Director of FASA, are available to meet with you to discuss study abroad or fellowship options and the respective application processes. They are happy to review essay drafts or offer advice on interview strategies for those applying to fellowships that require interviews. Please call the office to make an appointment or visit the office for help on a walk-in day: Tuesdays and Thursdays 9-11am and 2-4pm.

If you are interested in studying at Caltech as a visiting or exchange student, please see this page for further information.

In addition to Fellowships Advising, our office also handles Caltech's official study abroad programs. We offer several study abroad programs that Caltech students may participate in for one term during their junior or senior year. The Caltech Scholars study abroad programs offer students the opportunity to study science and engineering and receive Caltech option or general credit. Some programs allow students to study subjects in the humanities or social sciences. A general description of these programs is available on this website and more specific information is available from our office.

We also provide resources and guidance for students who wish to study abroad or travel independently.

Funding for Graduate Study for Students Applying to Caltech

All applicants for graduate study at Caltech specifically should contact the Caltech Graduate Studies Office to discuss any questions related to graduate funding. The Fellowships Advising & Study Abroad Office cannot advise prospective students who are not currently registered in a degree program at Caltech or who are an alumnus or alumna of the Institute.

Graduate study applicants to Caltech should not email anyone on the staff of this office with questions as you will be directed to contact the Graduate Studies Office. An electronic form is available. Good luck with your application to Caltech!

If you are not a member of the Caltech community, please feel free to use any of the resources that we have provided here online, but note that we cannot answer your questions or be of direct assistance to you. You should direct your queries to your own school's study abroad program or fellowships office.
