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 graduate study and research both in the U.S. and abroad.
Lauren Stolper, Director and Meghan Kuroda, Assistant Director, of Fellowships Advising and Study Abroad (FASA) are available to meet with you to discuss study abroad or fellowship options and the respective application processes. They can review essay drafts, offer advice on fellowships, or help applicants with interview strategies for those applying to fellowships that require interviews. If you are unable to meet in person, you can email Lauren Stolper or Meghan Kuroda to set up a Zoom meeting. Lauren advises on all fellowships for graduate study abroad. Meghan's focus is on STEM fellowships for graduate study in the U.S. plus the Watson Fellowship.
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.
