Franklin & Marshall College’s Office of Fellowships' goal is to assist students and alumni in applying for prestigious national fellowships and support and guide them through the application and interview process. Fellowships range from short-term summer courses to multi-year graduate programs throughout the world.
Monica Cable (PhD, Tulane University) is the Director of Fellowships and Adjunct Assistant Professor of Anthropology. Prof. Cable has headed the Fellowships Office since 2010 and personally understands how truly transformational a postgraduate fellowship can be: she won a Thomas J. Watson Fellowship and after graduating from Middlebury College spent a year researching the status and the role of women in Chinese society in multiple sites across Asia and Australia. Dr. Cable’s background in adventure travel comes in handy when helping students decide where they would like to spend a year living, researching, and teaching. When not in the office or classroom, Prof. Cable can be found guiding students through China and Tibet or adding to her list of countries visited (50 at last count!).
Jill Graham (B.S. The Pennsylvania State University) has been the Project Coordinator in the Office of the Provost since 2006. In addition to assisting Professor Cable's work with students to gain postgraduate fellowships, Ms. Graham manages F&M's SPOT (Students Perceptions of Teaching) process and organizes two annual research fairs, as well as various other tasks in the Provost's Office. Outside of the office, Ms. Graham enjoys traveling to visit her two grown children and spending time in her garden.
