Fellowships are meant to encourage students towards the field of research. Unlike scholarships, which offer financial assistance for school and college level of education, fellowships offer financial aid to students to get ahead in their career after completing their graduation or post-graduation. These can be short-term or long-term depending on the requirement of the programme applied for. Both government and private organisations offer fellowships to allow students to get deeper insights in their respective fields of interests.
