U-M's Office of National Scholarships and Fellowships recruits and prepares students for national competitions. In practice, this often means advising students on application essays, choosing recommenders and working extensively to translate their personal hopes and dreams into actionable achievements.
Faculty, Staff and Advisors are encouraged to connect their students with ONSF as early as possible in their undergraduate career. Many nationally competitive programs, such as Rhodes and Beinecke, require U-M endorsement. Several opportunities found on the ONSF website are housed in other U-M units (e.g. the Fulbright Office in the International Institute or Peace Corps office in the International Center) and we will refer students to the correct unit whenever possible.
The form does not automatically nominate a student for an award or program, rather this is a one-step process to connect your student to ONSF for potential opportunities.
Note to Students: If you would like to talk with ONSF about Scholarship and Fellowship opportunities, please make an advising appointment.
