The first step in applying for nationally competitive opportunities is by identifying the fellowship and scholarship programs that are best suited to your own interests and ambitions. You are encouraged to make use of the database and we have also provided a list pages dedicated to those opportunities which require some form of university endorsement or application support. You can link through to those opportunities using the links on the left. On each scholarship page you will find complete details about the related campus process, deadlines, and what you can expect to submit for each opportunity.
CCSA staff are happy to meet with you to strategize about your application process and help you plan well in anticipation of campus and national deadlines. Remember that the CCSA cannot provide adequate assistance to you if you have waited until just days before a deadline. The seriousness with which you approach your application preparation, campus process and national deadlines indicates your overall seriousness of purpose. Applications of this nature require a lot of time and hard-work. In an effort to best support your efforts, please make an appointment with staff as early as you can and, ideally, months before an actual deadline.
