Do you know a standout undergraduate student — one who is especially inquisitive, engaged, and well prepared for graduate study and/or a career?
The Office of National and International Fellowships seeks referrals of juniors and graduating seniors who may be interested in applying for awards for research, public service, graduate study, or English teaching abroad.
Popular awards include the Fulbright U.S. Student Program, the National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship, graduate leadership scholarships (Marshall, Rhodes, Knight-Hennessy Scholars, etc.), and graduate scholarships for the U.S. Foreign Service (Rangel, Pickering, Payne).
Applicants for these awards participate in advising over the summer. Interested students will be provided access to Canvas advising workspace resources and personalized application materials feedback. Students can also book a national fellowships advising appointment through MyPLAN.
