The Office for Fellowships and Pre-Health Advising provides academic support and guidance for current Vassar students and alumni interested in advanced study in the health professions. In addition, the office coordinates the application process for fellowships requiring institutional support and provides information and assistance in the search for funding possibilities during the undergraduate experience, as well as for study after Vassar.

Vassar faculty, administrators, and graduates are a rich resource of graduate/professional school information. For information on academic graduate programs, students are encouraged to talk with the appropriate department at Vassar as well as with individual faculty members in the field of interest.
