Walter Green Fellowships
Deadline: 9 March 2020 (12:00 PM/NOON EST)

Applicants will be notified mid to late-April


The Walter Green Fellowships are for incoming or current Master's students who intend a career in public service or government and work in a paid job or internship for at least 15 hours a week. The student  must be or will be employed in a paid job or paid internship related to their program at GW in the DC Metro Area at the time of application. (GW employees are not eligible.)

Successful applicants will be representative of the goals of public service and government, such as policy and engaging/working with the community.


The fellowships will be up to $6,000 for full-time study and up to $3,000 for part-time study. This award (does not cover fees) is stackable* but does not support the summer semester, only fall and spring. Students who have not received fellowship funding for their study will receive preference for this fellowship.

Eligibility Requirements

Applicants must be studying on the Foggy Bottom campus (does not apply to distance education programs, or courses or hybrid courses) in a Master's program (PhDs are not eligible) in either CCAS, ESIA, GWSB (excluding Executive programs), CPS or GSEHD. Master's students at the Law School, SMHS and/or Milken are not eligible for this fellowship.

 Students working at GW (internship or job, paid or unpaid) or in a benefited position at GW are not eligible.


Interested applicants must apply via our online fellowships system. Applicants who submit material after the deadline will not be considered. We do not make exceptions. Instructions on how to apply through the portal can be found here.

*If you receive another award, you will need to check with the other unit (GW department or school) to ensure that award is also stackable and can be combined with this award. Note that the total of combined awards cannot exceed the cost of tuition.
