The Fellowships and Awards office works with Oberlin College students and alumni interested in applying for nationally competitive programs in a broad range of fields, from physical science to music performance. In addition to supporting current students’ applications, we also support alumni—three, five, or more years postgraduation.

You can find more details about many of the fellowships and scholarships available to you on our Available Fellowships web page.  Searchable databases are included at the bottom.

To make an appointment with Nick Petzak, please sign up for any available time.

The Office of Fellowships  is operating remotely.  Advising appointments will be conducted through ZOOM networking and scheduled during regular business through the appointments link above or by emailing
