Pathways Fellowships

The Pathways Fellowships were created to enable St. John’s students to transition into graduate study or careers that call for special or prerequisite courses. Pathways Fellowships are available for summer study abroad (Global Pathways) and for summer study or attendance at professional conferences in the United States (General Pathways). With Pathways Fellowships students are able to enroll, for example, in teacher education courses for the pursuit of public school teaching, art classes in preparation of a portfolio, pre-medical or biomedical courses, or global education programs. St. John’s College is committed to supporting students in the pursuit of such endeavors. Applications are available at the Office of Personal and Professional Development. Advice about choosing and applying for a Pathways Fellowship can be obtained from the Office of Personal and Professional Development staff at 505-984-6066 or santafe.oppd(at)


Pathways Fellowships, both Global and General, are open to current freshmen, sophomores, and juniors, as well as graduating seniors, on the Santa Fe campus, who are in good academic and disciplinary standing. Pathways recipients, other than graduating seniors, must be planning to return to either the Annapolis or the Santa Fe campus in the fall immediately following their fellowship experience.

Financial need does not affect a student’s eligibility.


A selection committee comprised of faculty and staff reviews each completed application.


Students may not undertake a Pathways Fellowship and an Ariel Internship Award during the same summer. Please note that no academic credit can be used towards graduation from St. John’s College through participation in the Pathways Fellowship program.
