Scholar Development & Fellowship Advising
Established in 2022, the Office of Scholar Development and Fellowship Advising supports students and recent graduates from across the university in their development as scholars through pursuit of nationally and internationally competitive awards. In collaboration with campus and community partners, we engage students through outreach and advising to help them identify and compete for external awards that provide pathways to scholarly, professional, and personal growth.
What Are External Fellowships?
In most cases, external fellowships and scholarships are funding, often with some programming, that can help you pursue a purposeful activity, such as research, language study, or public service.
Find the Right Fit
There are hundreds of nationally and internationally competitive awards out there! Find the competitions that are a good fit for you by considering the following factors:
- Demographic eligibility (citizenship, age, identity factors)
- Academic eligibility (field of study, GPA, graduation timeline)
- How well the goals and priorities of an award align with your own goals and priorities (professional plans, geographic considerations)
- Timeline (deadline, application components, when the award begins)
