Grants and Fellowships Advising

Grants and Fellowships Advising at Bennington focuses on connecting students with opportunities to extend their work—either outside the classroom or after graduation.

Jennifer Burg, Assistant Director for Academic Services and Student Grants Counselor, offers advising on locally- and nationally-competitive fellowships, awards, grants, and scholarships. Working with both Bennington students and alumni, Jennifer provides information and support throughout the fellowship application process—from matching students with appropriate fellowship opportunities, to preparing and submitting a compelling application package.

Please contact Jennifer Burg to discuss your application to any of these exciting opportunities.
