The Office of National Scholarship Advisement (ONSA) assists eligible students in the pursuit of distinguished nationally competitive scholarships and fellowships. We also assist students who wish to apply for certain University scholarships available to undergraduates.
To help you with your application, we will give you advice on application information, recommendations, study and research proposals, personal statements, curriculum vitae, and interviews.
We recommend you begin by scanning the list of scholarships to the right and then, if you are interested, complete the ONSA Internal Application. This application helps us find out who you are and which scholarships you might be best suited for. When answering the questionnaire keep in mind that some of these questions will also be found on the actual scholarship applications so be thoughtful in your answers.
Start exploring scholarships early in your college career. Preparing for these opportunities requires work well in advance of submission deadlines. Look for fellowships that match your interests and experience. In addition, consult your professors, and others. Watch for announcements and information meetings throughout the year, and visit ONSA to tell us about yourself, your interests, and your vision for the future.
