Nomination Required

Many prestigious national and international scholarship and fellowship competitions require institutional nomination and endorsement by the University. Nominations are coordinated through the Office of Fellowships and the Office of International Programs or the Office of Study Abroad. Each scholarship therefore requires a local "pre-application" by a campus deadline, which in some cases will be followed by an interview.

From these applicants, the KU nominees are selected. Nominees then work with the Director of Fellowships and Scholarships and other KU fellowships advisors before applying to the national organization by the national deadline.  Nominees are not required to be members of the University Honors Program.
