About ONSA

In the Office of National Scholarship Advisement (ONSA), we assist eligible students who wish to pursue distinguished nationally competitive scholarships and fellowships. The ONSA advsiors help students apply for awards for post-graduate study such as the Rhodes, Marshall, Fulbright, Churchill, and Gates Cambridge. Students working with ONSA can also apply for scholarships during their undergraduate years including the Truman and Goldwater. Through ONSA, students can also apply for scholarships available to UMass students through special donations made to the UMass President's Office. Please visit the ONSA website for details on these opportunities.
