Watson Fellows decide where to go, who to meet and when to change course. They do not affiliate with academic institutions and may not hold formal employment. The program produces a year of personal insight, perspective and confidence that shapes the arc of Fellows’ lives. Started in 1968, Watson Fellows comprise leaders in every field.
The one-year stipend is $36,000.
Colorado College is one of 40 liberal arts schools invited to nominate four graduating seniors for this unique fellowship. The Watson Fellowship supports a year of directed exploration and independent travel outside of the United States. Fellows have traveled in anywhere from 2 to 12 countries. Single country proposals are extremely rare. The Watson is not a research fellowship directed at data gathering or scholarship. It is not based on academic merit. Rather, the Watson Foundation seeks to find and support students of “unusual promise” to give them the opportunity to enhance their capacity for resourcefulness, imagination, openness, and leadership, and to foster their humane and effective participation in the world. Since 1968, The Watson Foundation has awarded over 2,500 fellowships, providing support to future global leaders in every field of experience.
