Competitive Fellowships

Office of Undergraduate Research & Scholars

Our Fellowship Advisors connect students to prestigious opportunities that best align with their experience, goals, and future direction. Through holistic advising and mentorship, we encourage students to reflect upon academic efforts and student engagement, develop confidence in articulating aspirations, and to view the application process as a worthwhile learning experience and development opportunity.

How Can We Help?

  • One-on-one or group information sessions with our advisors to learn about different fellowship opportunities.
  • Advising and mentorship from the start of the application process all the way to competition results!
  • Interactive group sessions to learn about the value of fellowships and preparing to be a future competitive applicant.
