Advisors, Faculty & Staff

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, helping identify  recommenders, and working extensively to translate their personal hopes and dreams into actionable achievements. 

To that end, we welcome all advisors, faculty, staff and community members who work with these outstanding U-M students to take advantage of these resources and continue supporting the exemplary history of U-M scholarship applicants and recipients.
