A Unit of Undergraduate Studies

What we do

The Office of Fellowships and Scholarships serves as a common location for KU undergraduates looking for information on competitive scholarships and fellowships.

A new unit of Undergraduate Studies, the Office oversees the campus nomination process for many fellowships, including Rhodes, Marshall, Mitchell, Churchill, Goldwater, Truman and Udall. Fulbright Programs are coordinated in the Office of International Programs. Boren and Gilman Fellowships and Scholarships are coordinated in the Office of Study Abroad.

KU Students also have great success with a number of national awards that do not require nomination. The Office can provide advising resources and support for students interested in these awards, too!

See our Resources page for more information.
