A Unit of Academic Success

What we do

The Office of Fellowships is a unit of Undergraduate Studies dedicated to guiding students through the process of applying for national scholarships and other funding opportunities. We also coordinate nominations for twelve national fellowships and serve as a resource for students and faculty across campus.

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

A unit of Academic Success, 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.

The Office of Fellowships will be closed December 21-January 3, with remote operations resuming on January 4, 2021.
