As we round the bend to November, the Office of Merit Scholarships, Fellowships & Awards will be offering a series of workshops to support undergraduates and alumni in seeking out and crafting competitive scholarship applications. Personal Statement writing and CV writing sessions may be particularly helpful to undergraduates and alumni who are in the thick of grad school applications.
Getting Started with Scholarships
Get started on your scholarship journey! These sessions will give undergrads a head start into searching and competitively applying for scholarships. In addition to general tips and guidelines, scholarships with upcoming deadlines will be highlighted each week. Learn what scholarships can support you right now, or enable you to continue pursuing your education in the future.
