The Office of National Scholarship Advisement (ONSA) works with eligible students in the pursuit of distinguished nationally and internationally competitive scholarships and fellowships. We also support students who wish to apply for certain University scholarships available to undergraduates.

ONSA offers advice on application information, recommendations, study and research proposals, personal statements, and interview preparation. We recommend you begin by scanning the list of scholarships. If you are interested, please click here for instructions on how to contact us.

We encourage you to 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.
