    What is the Wallenberg Fellowship?
    Inspired by the spirit of Raoul Wallenberg, the Wallenberg Fellowship is awarded in the spring of each year to a graduating senior of exceptional promise and accomplishment who is committed to service and the public good. The fellowship provides $25,000 to carry out an independent project of learning or exploration anywhere in the world during the year after graduation.

    What are the benefits?
    The Fellow will engage in a self-designed and self-directed area of exploration or project of experiential learning. Through an active and immersive year-long experience, and by connecting in meaningful ways with the lives of other people and communities, the Wallenberg Fellow will prepare to make a difference in the world.

    Why Should I apply?
    This is a rare, fully funded, leadership opportunity that will allow you to gain deep access to a community and connect with people and cultures in a real way, in order to impact your life moving forward.

    What is it not?
    This experience does not have to be research based
