The Watson Fellowship

The Watson Fellowship is a one-year grant for independent study and travel outside the U.S. awarded to graduating college seniors nominated by participating institutions. The stipend for the fellowship year is $25,000, or $35,000 for fellows accompanied by a spouse or dependent child. The award is a program of The Thomas J. Watson Foundation, which was established in 1961 in honor of Thomas J. Watson, the founder of IBM. Since 1968, the fellowship program has granted more than 2,700 Watson Fellowship awards, with stipends totaling more than $29 million. The deadline is typically in November.
