  • Scholarship Description
  • The Thomas J. Watson Fellowship is a one-year grant for purposeful, independent study outside the United States, awarded to graduating seniors nominated by one of 40 partner colleges.

    The Watson is a rare window of time after college and pre-career to engage your deepest interest on a world scale. Fellows conceive original projects, execute them outside of the United States for one year and embrace the ensuing journey. They decide where to go, who to meet and when to change course. They do not affiliate with academic institutions and may not hold formal employment.

    The program produces a year of personal insight, perspective and confidence that shapes the arc of fellows' lives. Started in 1968, Watson alumni comprise leaders in every field. The one-year stipend is $30,000. Only partner colleges may nominate students.

    Fellow Expectations:
    -Attend the pre-departure webinar (spring)
    -Depart by August 1 of the award year
    -Remain outside of the United States for 1 year
    -Remain outside countries that are on State Department Warning, Treasury Embargo or are designated CDC Level 3
    -Submit quarterly reports and an end of year expense report
    -Attend the returning fellows' conference (August)
