The Office of National Scholarships (ONS) is dedicated to providing guidance and support for USF’s high achieving students as they compete for national merit scholarships across all disciplines. The scholarships and fellowships are for creative, motivated, academically strong students who are leaders in and out of the classroom.
We identify, recruit and mentor students who apply for prestigious scholarships such as the Truman, Rhodes, Fulbright, Marshall and Mitchell. We also work with faculty members to recruit candidates, write strong letters of recommendation, review applications and essays, and provide mock interviews for applicants. This process ensures that students’ applications are of the highest caliber and reflect the students’ excellence.
Our doors are open to all USF students and alumni who are interested in merit-based scholarships. We work with undergraduate and graduate students at all levels and in all fields. USF students are excellent candidates for these awards and we want to discuss your options with you!
Your next steps to begin learning about our office and these funded opportunities are:

Become a scholarship expert by exploring the scholarships’ websites and becoming thoroughly familiar with each opportunity.
