U-M's Office of National Scholarships and Fellowships is located in the LSA Honors Program, but is a service provided to all students at the University. Our applicants come from all 18 U-M schools and colleges, graduate and professional as well as undergraduate.
ONSF's mission is to increase both the diversity and competitiveness of U-M students applying to major national scholarships and fellowships while helping all applicants to develop into self-aware leaders and citizens who have specific plans to challenge the present and transform the future.
The ONSF website is intended to provide a single, comprehensive source of information for students seeking nationally- and internationally-competitive scholarships and fellowships. Advising and nomination for these programs is occasionally housed in other U-M units (e.g. the Fulbright Office in the International Institute or Peace Corps office in the International Center). In these cases we have provided links to the appropriate U-M contacts and webpages.
Some of the opportunities listed on this website (e.g. the Rhodes, Marshall, Goldwater, and Truman Scholarships) require U-M endorsement. In these cases, students cannot apply directly and must follow the instructions and deadlines posted for the U-M nomination process. For programs that do not require U-M nomination, students may apply directly with or without assistance from ONSF advisors. In many cases, ONSF keeps a lists of U-M alums who have completed these programs and would be willing to mentor future U-M applicants.
Please check back occasionally as we continue to add new opportunities and resources. If you find a good program that is not already on our website, please let us know!
