Getting Started

The Office of National Scholarships and Fellowships is an office at the University of Michigan that recruits and prepares U-M undergraduates, graduate and professional students and recent alums for major national scholarship and fellowship competitions. We work with students from every school and college at U-M. 

ONSF Policies for Applicants details components such as recommendation letters, class rank, and Canvas.

ONSF Canvas Courses provides links for applicants to join ONSF's courses, which have in-depth information about ONSF-sponsored programs.

Scholarships & Fellowships

ONSF applicants come from all 18 U-M schools and colleges, graduate and professional as well as undergraduate. Here you will find a number of opportunities for external funding. 

Some are scholarships which provide financial support for degree-based programs. Many of these opportunities are for postgraduate study, such as the Rhodes Scholarship which provides full support for 2-3 years of study at the University of Oxford.  A few, however, such as the GoldwaterAstronaut, and Udall Scholarships provide money for junior or senior year.  

Other programs are fellowships and provide support for postgraduate experiential programs that do not result in a degree.  One example includes U-M’s Wallenberg Fellowship, which provides $25,000 to a graduating senior each year to complete a self-designed fellowship year anywhere in the world.  

Finally, you’ll find a number of funded summer programs including opportunities for language study and STEM research. These programs can also provide valuable building blocks for later scholarship and fellowship applications.
