Proposals are reviewed by the Hamilton faculty fellowship committee. Students are chosen for on campus interviews and four nominees are selected. A second interview, with a representative from the Watson Foundation, is conducted between mid-November and late January. Fellowship recipients are announced in mid-March.
Copies of successful past proposals are available for your review on reserve in the library, behind the circulation desk in binders marked Watson Fellowship and Bristol Fellowship, and in the Fellowships Office, Elihu Root House, room 208. Learn more about past Watson Fellowship winners.
