Guides & Opportunities

In an effort to support recent U-M alumni and applicants to programs that do not require U-M Nomination, ONSF created the following application and resource guides for various scholarships, fellowships, and programs popular among U-M students.

What types of opportunities are on this page? 

The opportunities explored below are considered "direct-apply" and do not require U-M nomination or endorsement. As such, ONSF does not offer targeted advising for these opportunities. 

Students interested in U-M nominated scholarships or fellowships should follow the application guidelines offered on their applicant Canvas site or module. Visit Getting Started to learn more about how to apply for nominated scholarships and fellowships. 

Who can access these guides?

These guides are available to U-M students, staff, and faculty. A Uniqname and password are required for access. 

Scholarship & Fellowship Application Guides

Prospective applicants are encouraged to do their own research regarding these opportunities. The following guides are meant as a supplementary resource for U-M applicants and should be used in tandem with the materials provided by the specific scholarship or fellowship foundation. 

Opportunities & Reflection Guides

External opportunities, resources, and activities included in these guides are not sponsored or endorsed by the University. They are included because they may be of interest to those considering a gap year. Students are encouraged to do their own research to determine if an opportunity is aligned with their interests.
