Update—Nov. 9, 2021: The Office of the Provost provided an update on new fellow intake.  Please see below for a message from Senior Vice Provost for Academic Affairs Terry Murphy. 

Dear Members of the George Washington University Community,

As you may know, many of our fellowship programs, including the Presidential Fellowship, are administered by the Office of the Provost. Our office regularly assesses fellowship and scholarship programs to ensure we are best supporting our students and the university's academic mission. As we undertake a planned assessment of the Presidential Fellowship, we will pause new fellow intake, effective this fall, and our current fellows will continue in the program. We will provide an update on the Presidential Fellowship by the next academic year.


Terry Murphy
