How do academic fellowships work?

Question

I am looking into an academic fellowship and it is asking to list a "current faculty advisor."  Also, it is saying the proposed research plan will be shared with the faculty advisor.

This makes sense for continuing graduate students, but what about undergraduate seniors who are planning on attending a different institution? How would that work?

Should I list the professor I have been working with in undergraduate years? But I will most likely not be pursuing the proposed research with him?

PLEASE HELP ASAP I AM SO CONFUSED

Not all of them. Some of them give you the option to say that you are an undergrad or someone applying to grad school, so then that implies that you aren't currently enrolled in grad school and therefore don't have a graduate faculty advisor, so that is why I asked what fellowship you are applying to see if I can help you better or not.

I guess you list the professor you are currently working with, but I would talk to them about it and see what they suggest. Good luck!
