National Fellowships Program
Many Congratulations to Our Program Coordinator, Dr. Mariam Banahi, a 2020 Mellon/ACLS Public Fellow!
We are thrilled to congratulate Dr. Mariam Banahi, our Program Coordinator for the past two years, on being named a 2020 Mellon/ACLS Public Fellow. The Public Fellows program places recent PhDs in substantive roles in nonprofit and civic organizations. She will bring her extraordinary talent and commitment to a new position at Refugees International, as the Program Manager, Global Assessment of Country Practices on Refugee and Humanitarian Protection. Dr. Banahi completed her PhD in Anthropology this spring and has won multiple grants and fellowships previously, including the Fulbright. We will miss her, but we wish her the very best in this exciting new role!
Where will your experience at Hopkins take you? The National Fellowships Program is one place to find out. If you want to deepen your academic training or your experiential learning, a nationally competitive fellowship might be your path to it. The recognition an award brings is only the beginning. You will grow with the experience of advanced study, living abroad, the chance to join a community of fellows and the networks that fellowship opportunities open up. Even from the application process, you’ll gain transferable skills—benefits that accrue whether you advance or not. Do you know how to write a research proposal? Or how to describe your academic passions to various audiences? Can you pull together the evolution of your interests into a compelling story? The application process builds your self-awareness and helps you take firm hold of the opportunities ahead. Working with the NFP can be one of your highest impact experiences. We guide undergraduates, graduate students, and recent alums toward their most effective applications. To get started, explore the list of fellowships we advise students, read what your peers say about their experiences, and fill out our brief inquiry form to request a meeting.
