Go Beyond the Ordinary
Distinguished Fellowships take your college experiences beyond the ordinary. These competitive, merit-based awards provide a wide range of opportunities to teach or study abroad, conduct research, fund graduate studies or pursue professional development. Embark on a journey of self-discovery, find yourself in new places, and make otherwise impossible connections that will benefit you for a lifetime.
Join a Tradition of Excellence
For over a decade, the Office of Distinguished Fellowships has guided Rutgers students in applying for and winning many truly prestigious awards. Year after year, our students are the recipients of the Fulbright, Goldwater, Truman, Gates Cambridge, Schwarzman, and Marshall awards, along with many others.
I join the office with experience in mentorship, academic and fellowship advising, language education, and qualitative research. Before joining the team, I held a variety of roles in higher education and previously served as a fellowship advisor and communication and outreach assistant at GradFund at Rutgers. I’m dedicated to empowering students with the tools and resources needed to navigate fellowship applications. Beyond my professional pursuits, you can find me exploring new hiking trails, coffee shops, and baking new recipes.
I have served as a fellowship advisor since 2015 helping Rutgers undergraduate students navigate the process of applying for nationally competitive awards. Prior to working for the Office of Distinguished Fellowships, I managed the Plangere Writing Center and tutoring program where I helped Rutgers students improve their writing skills. Before earning my bachelor's in English Literature, I spent six years working in the fashion and beauty industry as a makeup artist and stylist in Los Angeles, California.
