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.
Supporting ONSF Applicants
Below, Dr. Henry Dyson, Director of ONSF, offers a wide range of resources for recommenders, faculty, and staff including: general guidelines, scholarship-specific advice, information on recognizing and avoiding implicit bias in letters of recommendation, and an overview of FERPA policies.
Check out the Director's Blog for a new series of articles and thought pieces that bring years of ONSF advising experience to light.
