William M. Bristol Fellowship
Open to seniors. U.S. citizenship is not required.
One year outside of the U.S.
Proposals are reviewed by the Hamilton faculty fellowship committee. Students are chosen for on campus interviews; nominees are selected for a second interview with members of the Bristol family.
The Bristol Fellowship was created, in 1996, by the Bristol family in honor of William M. Bristol, Jr. '17. Copies of successful past proposals are available for your review in the Student Fellowships Office in the career center.
Bristol Fellowship recipients have journeyed around the globe living in gypsy wagons, on remote Pacific Islands, and villages in Africa. They have kayaked down wild rivers, lived with those less fortunate and danced through Latin America. They have had to be resourceful, independent, compassionate and courageous. They have known loneliness and isolation and found community and friendship. For them, the time of their fellowship was a year like no other.
