Resources for Students
We'll help you navigate the process of applying for awards, from requesting letters of recommendation to completing budget sheets.
You can also research additional fellowships opportunities in Handshake.
If you are applying for the President's Summer Fellowship or Internship Award applications, you will need to download and complete a budget worksheet.
Requesting a Transcript
Check out our page, "Requesting a Transcript for Fellowships Applications," for information on how to get an official copy of your transcript for Fellowships applications at no charge. Complete, sign, and deliver the form to the registrar's office listing CLBR Fellowships as the recipient and your transcript will be provided at no charge to you! Note that working with an electronic version is easiest.
