A new office has been created at the University of Nebraska at Omaha to assist students with information and guidance on applying for nationally-awarded scholarships and fellowships.
Housed within UNO Academic Affairs, the Office of National Scholarships and Fellowships exists to serve any student who wishes to apply for highly-competitive, prestigious opportunities that can support their academic goals. These awards include grants for research, study abroad programs and support for pursuing master-and-doctoral-level degrees.
“This office was formed to elevate the profile of these highly competitive scholarships and fellowships to which many students may not realize they have access,” explains Lucy Morrison, Ph.D., director of the office. “There are such a wide variety of awards and requirements, so we really are encouraging students to learn more about these opportunities.”
Unlike other funding opportunities that students may access through Financial Support and Scholarships, which can include UNO-specific or privately-funded options, the awards managed by the Office of National Scholarships and Fellowships receive hundreds of competitive applications from across the country.
Because many of the awards have academic requirements and other stipulations, students are encouraged to consult the list available on the Office of National Scholarships and Fellowships website for information. Students who are interested in pursuing any of these opportunities are encouraged to reach out to the office by emailing email@example.com. The office can also be found in Kayser Hall, Room 208.
For general scholarship, fellowship or grant information, please contact Financial Support and Scholarships at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 402.554.2327.
