Experiential learning is a vital component of a well-rounded liberal arts education. Internships, research experiences outside the classroom, co-curricular service activities, and off-campus studies foster not only the acquisition and integration of knowledge but also growth in interpersonal skills. Overwhelmingly, Grinnell students take advantage of these opportunities.
Inquiry-based learning, individualized advising, and the rigorous curriculum provide Grinnellians with an exceptional academic foundation on which to build in graduate or professional school. Here are just a few of the schools at which our graduates pursued further studies:

For many Grinnellians, a post-graduate service position connects not only to civic interests but also to early steps in finding the right blend between civic and career goals. In addition, our students apply for and receive national merit-based scholarships and fellowships at exceptionally high rates.
