National Award Preparation

Why apply for a national scholarship or fellowship?

It’s a win-win for high-achieving students! These awards recognize and reward students who have made the most of their undergraduate experience. The award preparation and application process is also a tremendous way to prepare for all postgraduate opportunities.
