Scholarships and Fellowships
Looking for national scholarships and fellowships that provide opportunities for study, research, and professional experience?
The Center for Undergraduate Excellence has a TON of information about scholarships & fellowships! But wait--what is a national scholarship or fellowship?
"A national scholarship or fellowship (sometimes called a nationally competitive scholarship) is a scholarship awarded to students from throughout the United States, as opposed to one aimed at students attending a particular educational institution. Applicants for these awards participate in national--or, in some instances, regional--competitions. These scholarships are generally administered by a private organization, such as the Rhodes Trust, or a government entity (e.g., the Truman Foundation). Some of them (e.g., Udall, Pickering) provide financial support for undergraduates. However, many of these scholarships are geared toward graduate studies."
