The Office of Undergraduate Academic Affairs provides students with information about national awards and competitive scholarship and fellowship opportunities,  and encourages interested applicants to seek advice on the application process.  

For general questions about financial aid, please contact Financial Aid and Scholarship Services.

The national and/or external fellowship opportunities listed are highly competitive; and some require an institutional nomination or endorsement.To successfully compete for these awards, applicants must have a compelling personal statement, an impressive leadership and/or public service record, evidence of an intellectual or creative endeavor, and detailed letters of recommendation that highlight and confirm the applicant's exceptional qualifications.

We encourage all prospective applicants to read the requirements carefully and to check the individual selection criteria and/or eligibility requirements. All internal deadlines are observed strictly and without exception. Please note that University Endorsements are a privilege and not a guarantee.
