Mortar Board National Foundation Fellowship Awards Since the inception of Mortar
Board’s fellowship program in 1941, more than half a million dollars has been
given to deserving members of Mortar Board pursuing postgraduate degrees.
The program started with two awards
of $500 and has grown to several awards of between $3,000 and $5,000 each. A
member of any age may apply for a Mortar Board Fellowship for postbaccalaureate
study in any field.
The Mortar Board Fellowship
Selection Committee endeavors to provide for a streamlined, yet
thought-provoking application process that allows each applicant to showcase
her/his accomplishments and plans. The Ideals of Mortar Board are considered:
robust scholarship that is competitive nationwide, meaningful leadership, and
dedication to service to one’s alma mater.
These fellowships are
awarded annually. Applications for
the upcoming awards must be submitted on or before March 1.
