U-M's Office of National Scholarships and Fellowships is a service provided by the LSA Honors Program to all students at the University. Our mission is to increase both the participation and competitiveness of U-M students in national scholarship and fellowship opportunities while furthering the educational goals of all of our applicants. Our students come from all schools and colleges within U-M, graduate as well as undergraduate. Students do not need to be affiliated with the LSA Honors Program to make use of ONSF advising and programs.
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 LSA 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 page (e.g. the Rhodes, Marshall, 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!
