Promoting scholarly advancement through national scholarships, fellowships, and postgraduate opportunities

The College Center for Scholarly Advancement (CCSA) supports current undergraduates in the College, recent graduates and College alumni by providing information and guidance about applying for nationally and internationally competitive funding, and post-graduate opportunities. CCSA staff members provide general support to students by identifying relevant opportunities and assisting in strategically planning for those opportunities, closely mentor students through rigorous application processes, and facilitate campus endorsement procedures when relevant. Student and alumni are encouraged to use the searchable opportunities database to browse available scholarships, fellowships, and post-graduate opportunities. Those interested in pursuing undergraduate research should consult the resources available here.
