  • Inform students, faculty and staff about available scholarships and fellowships.
  • Help students find scholarships that match their goals and interests.
  • Guide students through their applications with info sessions, writing workshops, one-on-one meetings, mock interviews and all the details of scholarship competitions.
  • Work with faculty and staff to recommend and refer potential scholars as well as conduct campus reviews and applicant prep.
