Honors and Undergraduate Research

Honors and Undergraduate Research facilitates the application processes for numerous prestigious nationally competitive fellowships and scholarships, such as the Rhodes, Marshall, Truman, Goldwater, and Churchill Scholarships. Each of these scholarships provides an amazing opportunity for education, personal growth, and career advancement. Most prestigious scholarships, however, were created not as a mere reward for good students, but as a way to invest in the future, a way to help today’s agents of change become tomorrow’s leaders.

All National Fellowships provide some degree of financial support for tuition fees, travel, and living expenses. Most scholarships fellowships are for graduate study, especially abroad. Students interested in any of these awards should begin to prepare early in their careers.
