Fellowship Office

The Fellowship Office is the place to learn about nationally competitive scholarships or fellowships - in other words, money to help fund undergraduate or graduate/professional studies.

Our mission is to find individual fellowships that fit your goals.

The Fellowship Advisor, Dr. Tom Moore, helps students identify scholarships and fellowships that match their background and career goals. The Advisor also assists students in preparing applications and works with faculty to ensure strong letters of recommendation.

Email Dr. Moore or stop by his office in Old Main 330G to learn more!
