GVSU students and alumni have secured over $3,000,000 in (inter)nationally competitive award competitions, supporting a wide range of enriching experiences, including study abroad, graduate study, research, language study, teaching, service learning, internship, community and service opportunities. 

The Office of Fellowships serves ALL students and alumni of GVSU, including all majors or areas of study. Many awards we support specifically target underrepresented students in higher education- so we highly encourage students of ALL backgrounds to explore opportunities with us! In cooperation with GVSU faculty and staff, we work with qualified students to identify awards best suited to their goals, and to navigate the application process in order to produce the most competitive proposals possible. We promote the core values of professional fellowship advising, including integrity, collaboration, respect and fairness (as identified by the National Association of Fellowship Advisors)-- and view the entire fellowship application process as an integral part of transformative liberal arts education.

Note: If you need to fund an immediate financial need, please contact the Financial Aid Office located at 100 Student Services.
