Short-Term Opportunities After Graduation


Working Fellowships vs. Academic Scholarships Beyond Duke

ACADEMIC scholarships beyond Duke and academic fellowships are tied to graduate programs or particular academic pursuits. WORKING fellowships are an option for those seeking an enriching short-term professional experience after graduation without the required tie-in to graduate study. Professional fellowships are competitive in nature, can be located anywhere in the world, and serve as a fantastic launching pad for careers in ANY field and/or admissions into graduate and professional school. The difference between a working fellowship (which can also be called a post-graduate internship, assistantship, apprenticeship, program, or award, depending on the hosting organization) and other short-term employment opportunities is the level of prestige, professional development, and commitment involved.  Only those who will have completed an undergraduate degree by the time the program begins are eligible to apply for fellowships.
