The Pathways Fellowship was created to enable St. John’s students to transition into graduate study or careers that call for special or prerequisite courses. Through this program, students will be able to enroll, for example, in teacher education courses for the pursuit of public-school teaching, art classes in preparation of a portfolio or language, math, science, or psychology courses in preparation for graduate school (these are only a sample of options and are not meant to be all-encompassing). St. John’s College is committed to supporting students in the pursuit of such endeavors.
Awarded students will receive a maximum grant amount of $2,500.
We strongly recommend that students interested in pursuing summer coursework consult with the Career Development Office in the early stages of their planning.
