Wolcott Fellowships
Wolcott Foundation Fellowships for Master's Degree studies are awarded to US citizens who have not previously earned an advanced degree and are attending or applying to George Washington University's School of Business, the Elliott School of International Affairs, or the Trachtenberg School of Public Policy and Public Administration. While the Foundation seeks to support full-time students, students working full time for government or related activities may enroll for six semester hours in the fall and spring semesters.

These awards are designed to encourage young scholars (age 30 or younger) with outstanding academic, civic, and social credentials to pursue public service careers.

The maximum Wolcott Fellowship covers tuition and fees for 40 credit hours. The award is to be considered a grant (not to be repaid) if upon graduation the recipient is employed for four years in government services (federal, state, or local level) , in international affairs, or in selected international business in the private sector. Fellowship recipients may also request a relocation loan of up to $1,800. Relocation loans are awarded on the basis of need and must be repaid upon graduation.

Fellowship Requirements
Wolcott Fellowships are highly competitive and are determined by the trustees of the Wolcott Foundation. In addition to outstanding academic credentials, applicants must demonstrate a commitment to the Masonic ideals of high ethical and moral standards. Most awards are made to entering first-year graduate students in the School of Business, the Elliott School of International Affairs, and the Trachtenberg School of Public Policy and Public Administration; however, second-year students who will need at least 18 credit hours to complete their degree requirements after the spring application deadline are also encouraged to apply.

Fellowship awards are contingent upon admission to the University. Awards are announced in early April. While consideration is given to applicants with Masonic family background or Masonic youth participation, most students selected as Wolcott Fellows have no Masonic affiliations.
