The Thomas J. Watson Fellowship is a one-year grant for purposeful, independent exploration outside the United States, awarded to graduating seniors nominated by one of 40 partner colleges. We create original projects and embrace the ensuing journey. We decide what to study, where to go, who to meet and when to change course. There are no affiliations with academic institutions and no positions of formal employment.
