Committee On Fellowships and Prizes

The primary charge of the Fellowships and Prizes Committee is to interview and recommend applicants for national graduate fellowships like the Fulbright, Marshall, and Rhodes Scholarships in the fall and for the Swarthmore Fellowships in the spring. Other fellowships for which the committee submits recommendations include the Keasbey, Goldwater, and Truman Scholarships. In addition, the Committee makes recommendations to the Faculty for the Sarah Kaighn Cooper Scholarship to an outstanding junior, and the Lang, Ivy and Oak Leaf Awards to members of the senior class.
