Fellowships and Grants
John C. Orr, Ph.D. assistant to the provost
The Office of Fellowships and Grants works with students who are applying for major scholarships, such as Truman, Rhodes, Marshall, Fulbright, among many others. The office provides assistance in identifying the appropriate grant for individual students as well as assistance in the writing and revising of the essays that each grant requires. The office also provides assistance for recommenders who are writing letters in support of student applications. The final assembling of the application is often handled by this office. Several of the major scholarships require the certification of the Office of Fellowships and Grants, though students are encouraged to work with the office when applying for any major scholarship.
