Rosen Fellowship

The Scholarship Office is seeking applicants for the 2014 Rosen Fellowship. The Rosen Fellowship grants undergraduate students the opportunity to create an out-of-classroom experience that will promote creative or career advancement. Students may propose a full range of activities, including study abroad, personalized internships, scientific research, artistic expression, or community engagement. All applications will be evaluated on the basis of creativity and the degree to which the proposal will credibly advance the student's personal and professional life goals. Fellowships are competitive and will provide stipends of up to $5,000 to each chosen recipient.

All full-time undergraduate Brooklyn College students in good standing may apply for the Rosen Fellowship provided that, at the time of application, they have completed at least 30 credits and not more than 90 credits. It is expected that the student will complete at least two more semesters at Brooklyn College after completion of the Fellowship.

To learn more, brainstorm project ideas, or pick up an application, please send an e-mail to Stephen Gracia, Office of Scholarships, to set up an appointment. You can also view more information about this fellowship on the Scholarship Office's website.
