Depending on your fellowship and interests, you may need to do some research while crafting your application.
Possible research involved in fellowship applications:
- Identifying potential locations, organizations, or other opportunities for a Watson itinerary
- Exploring a policy issue for your Truman proposal (scholarly research, think tank research, statistics and data)
- Understanding the ins and outs of the UK university system for a Fulbright, Rhodes, or Marshall.
As a Swarthmore student, you have access to an array of resources to help with this research, including:

- Librarians - the Swarthmore Libraries staff can give you advice on application research, suggesting more effective and efficient ways to explore your interests - contact a librarian here, or ask Sarah Elichko (Social Sciences Librarian) for help by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
