Oberlin News Center

Throughout the year, Oberlin students and alumni compete for scholarships and fellowships that reward high achievement in disciplines across the board. From STEM fields to musical performance to social activism, Obies see their hard work, dedication, and talent recognized and supported by the most prestigious foundations and organizations in higher education.

A passion for languages and education is why Oberlin is consistently ranked as one of the top producers of Fulbright scholars among undergraduate institutions. The Fulbright fellowship and many others can take projects and research to the next level, allow for travel opportunities and exposure to cultures around the world, and enable Obies to put their education to use by helping those in need.
