From left: Elizabeth Zhou, Leo McElroy, and Tina Chen, all members of the Class of 2018, have been awarded Watson Fellowships for the coming year.

Join Barbara Ofosu-Somuah ’13 for a talk about her Fulbright and Watson Fellowships on Tuesday, March 20, 2018 at 4:30 pm in Axinn 229. 

Barbara studied psychology, sociology and Italian at Middlebury. During her Watson year, she explored the role of hair in Black, Latina and multiracial cultures in several countries. For her Fulbright grant, she examined diversity and inclusion efforts in Italian schools.

See go.middlebury.edu/watson for fellowship details and links to profiles of additional current and past recipients.

Eligibility: Fulbright requires US citizenship and is open to seniors and young alumni; Watson is open to all citizenship types, but you can only apply your senior/super-senior fall. 

If you’re considering applying to either of these in the fall, now is the time to think and to plan. Preliminary applications are due April 15 (but yes, you can still apply in the fall if you miss that date).

There are a few significant updates to share about Rhodes Scholarships for 2018:

  • DACA students in the US are now eligible for US Rhodes Scholarships
  • Newly expanded scholarships exists for citizens from Singapore and East African countries
  • Two new Global Rhodes Scholarships have been added for citizens not from existing Rhodes jurisdictions

See http://www.rhodesscholar.org/applying-for-the-scholarship/  for more information. The US Rhodes requires institutional nomination; others may as well. Applications (from young alumni and current seniors) for nomination by Middlebury College for the Fall 2018 application cycle are due April 6, 2018 at 5pm.
