What is the Office of National Scholarships?

Our office works with students to create customized roadmaps for becoming viable national scholarship candidates. We advise, mentor, and train students through mapping and matching their academic and research pursuits to strategically align with the requirements of competitive scholarships and fellowships.

What are national scholarships?

National scholarships are unique opportunities for high-achieving students to gain experiences that will help direct their pursuit of academic, professional, and personal goals.
Examples of these scholarships include the opportunity to:

  • Research and work in cutting-edge robotics engineering at top German institutions.
  • Represent the United States while teaching English in a foreign country.
  • Learn and practice a language critical to U.S. security in a country of that language’s origin.
  • Hone your leadership skills and join the world’s alliance to eradicate HIV/AIDS.

What are the benefits of attaining a national scholarship?

There are many different national scholarships, all of which offer unique and impactful benefits, some of which include:

  • Securing funding for academic and professional study
  • Building the foundation of an international network in STEM research
  • Becoming part of a world movement for humanitarian efforts

Your next steps to begin learning about our office and these funded opportunities are:
