About Us

The Competitive Fellowships Office is to help connect CSB/SJU students with merit-based opportunities that align with their experiences, goals, and future direction. Through mentorship, we encourage students to reflect upon academic efforts and co-curricular engagement, develop confidence in articulating aspirations in verbal and written formats, and to view the application process as a worthwhile learning experience. 

Over the years, CSB/SJU students have been awarded many prestigious awards worth hundreds of thousands of dollars in external funding. Most recently, we have been ranked as on the Top Fulbright Producing institutions for 2018-19 and 2019-20. 

We specialize in primarily recruiting for and advising students that are applying for the US Fulbright Student Program, Goldwater Scholarship, Truman Scholarship, Marshall Scholarship, Mitchell Scholarship, Rhodes Scholarship, and Udall Undergraduate Scholarship. We are happy to provide support to any student that should choose to pursue other fellowships or awards in their application process as well.
