A Unit of Undergraduate Studies

These prestigious scholarships to the United Kingdom and Ireland are some of the most competitive awards open to U.S. undergraduates and recent graduates. At the University of Kansas, the Office of Fellowships coordinates a combined committee and application process for these awards, as the same students are often interested in pursuing more than one of them. The process takes place in April each year ahead of the national deadlines in the fall. See the deadlines page for details.

The KU nomination process typically takes place in April each year. Interested students should contact Dr. Wallen at annewallen@ku.edu.

Students interested in studying in the United Kingdom are also encouraged to consider the NIH OxCam Scholars Program, Gates Cambridge Scholarship, which is open to citizens of all countries except the UK, and the Chevening Scholarships, open to citizens of many countries outside the US or UK.
