Since 2014, New York Institute of Technology has offered all of its students the opportunity to broaden their perspectives and interact with the larger world through academic and cultural experiences supported by the Edward Guiliano Global Fellowships. Through experiential-based learning outside their community and comfort zones, students will grow personally and professionally in this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Multiple awards of $750, $2,500, and $5,000 are given each year.

Open to New York Tech students on all campuses, the fellowships, which can be self-directed, sponsored by the university, or done in partnership with another institution, may be used to:

  • Engage in research or artistically expressive, innovative projects around the world.
  • Present original findings or work at conferences and symposiums.
  • Support ideas to produce novel solutions or creative content.


  • Projects must take place at least 200 miles (322 km) from your home or home campus.
  • All applicants must have at least a 2.6 GPA in order to apply.
  • Projects must take place between May 20 and December 31, 2020.
  • Recipients must also deliver a final project summary (500 words plus photos and headshot).
