National Scholarships and Graduate Fellowships

What are fellowships?

Fellowships are nationally competitive and well-regarded awards that provide funding to allow select students and alumni specific opportunities in the U.S. and abroad.  Some of these include advanced academic research, post-undergraduate degree based study, and short-term employment.  We use the term "fellowship" interchangeably with "scholarship" and "grant."

The Fellowships Advisor serves UNF students by: 

  • Sharing information on award opportunities and application procedures

  • Reviewing and critiquing application essays

  • Providing institutional endorsement for each applicant who receives a campus nomination (for the awards that require a nomination/endorsement)

  • Submitting application materials on behalf of nominated/endorsed applicants

  • Staging mock interviews for applicants selected for semi-final and final interviews
