This website provides updated information about our response to the pandemic and our ongoing efforts to prevent the spread of COVID-19, and is being continually updated throughout the Spring 2021 semester.Spring 2021 Info
It appears that with widespread availability of several highly effective COVID-19 vaccines, we can now see a light at the end of the tunnel. To that end, we have spent considerable time planning for the Fall 2021 semester. We are looking forward to being able to return to many of our pre-pandemic norms in terms of class formats, student life, and other staples of the University of New Haven experience.Fall 2021 Planning
As a student at the University of New Haven, you will have the opportunity to work closely with your professors in conducting innovative research. And, you can pursue prestigious – and nationally recognized – fellowships that make it possible to participate in transformational learning experiences.
Students have secured Boren and Fulbright Scholarships as well as research awards from the National Science Foundation, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, and other well-known organizations.
External financial awards – funded by government grants or private foundations – are competitive and reserved for outstanding students only. The University has had much success in placing students in these opportunities for study abroad, graduate school, independent research, public service, internships, and teaching experiences in the U.S. and abroad.
Such awards may be used for study abroad, graduate school, independent research, public service, internships, or teaching experiences in the U.S. or abroad.
These awards may be funded by government grants or private foundations and are generally quite competitive, although the profile of an ideal candidate varies, depending on the award. Some are more narrow and specialized within a disciplinary area, while others are much more holistic, seeking well-rounded individuals who can demonstrate talents and experiences well beyond college transcripts and letters of reference.
In addition to the benefits of a significant financial award, these grants and fellowships confer a number of tangible and intangible benefits, some of which are lifelong. The prestige associated with a major national or international fellowship can facilitate admission to top-tier graduate programs, jobs in government, opportunities for work abroad, and access to networks of senior experts.
