The Cal Band closed out its triumphant two-week Asia tour, which saw both a spirited performance of traditional tunes like “Fight for California” and “Big C” at China’s Great Wall and a halftime show of Taylor Swift songs at a football game in Osaka Expo Park.

Postdoctoral Fellowships

Andrew W. Mellon Postdoctoral Fellowship at Wesleyan University
Applicants are invited to apply for a postdoctoral fellowship, made possible through a grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to Wesleyan University. The purpose of the fellowship is to provide scholars who have recently completed their Ph.D.’s with free time to further their own work in a cross-disciplinary setting, and to associate with a distinguished faculty.

Funding Your Graduate Education

For graduate study, universities support students through fellowships, teaching appointments, research assistant positions, or a combination of these sources. The monies available are often dependent on the size of departments' and schools' endowments and resources that may be available through the Graduate Division. Each school or department has its own methods of distributing fellowship funds. Keep in mind that little funding is usually available for terminal master's degree students.
