Nationally competitive scholarships and fellowships are highly selective funding opportunities for bright and talented students to pursue study, research, public or foreign service, and more, at both the undergraduate and graduate level in the U.S. and abroad. They fund exceptional learning experiences as a means of attaining larger educational and career goals. Students who receive these awards are recognized for their previous track records of stellar academic performance, outstanding leadership, service (campus, local, state, national, and international levels), and involvement, research, foreign language acquisition, and more.
