Pathways Fellowship

Program Overview

The Pathways Fellowship enables 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 pre-medical courses for medical school (these are only a sample of options, 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.
