Any way to get TAD orders for fellowship interviews so I don't have to burn up leave? Would be starting the summer I separate? Navy if that matters.

If you're getting out (not retiring), generally no. The Navy usually won't pay for people to go interview for their post-Navy jobs.

Even "no-cost" TAD has a cost associated with it.

For my fellowship interviews, I was able to get no-cost TAD because it was a FTOS position and I was coming back to the Navy afterward. I've heard that some people have been able to get funded TAD for FTOS interviews.

Think of it this way - if a lance corporal was getting out of the Marine Corps after doing his 4 year term, would you expect the military to pay for him to travel for civilian job interviews or to check out different colleges or vocational programs?

I received no-cost TAD for fellowship interviews, I also personally know an individual who received funded TAD orders for fellowship (FTOS) interviews.

Fellowship to be done once you were out of the military or still part of a military obligation?
