Open Application Fellowships

The Office of Fellowships and Scholarships supports students applying directly for fellowships and scholarships that do not need institutional endorsement. Students are strongly encouraged to register intent and seek assistance with their applications from the Director of Fellowships and Scholarships, Dr. Anne Wallen. You may also consult her for support with applying for other academic scholarships and fellowships.

Please see the "Nominations" section of this website for information on awards that require institutional endorsement, such as the Goldwater, Truman, and Rhodes Scholarships.
