PRESTIGIOUS SCHOLARSHIPS (external)

Prestigious Scholarships (such as Fulbright, Truman, Goldwater, Rhodes, NASA, and many more)   not only provide you with opportunities to fund your future graduate study, but can be important elements of building your resume. These scholarships are often highly competitive, and involve building up a strong student profile even to be able to compete for them.
The Honors College, through its Mid-West Center for Undergraduate Research (MCUR) and through its commitment to Advising high-achievers is pleased to alert you to these and to discuss any plans you might have to apply for such scholarships. In addition, we provide occasional workshops and discussions that will assist you in undertaking such applications. Watch our Friday announcements for further information on future workshops and discussions.

A Few Examples:

The Harry S Truman Scholarship for those pursuing careers as public service leaders

The Rhodes Scholarship for students to study at the University of Oxford

Fulbright Scholarship for study/research in countries around the world
