Our office provides comprehensive advising and administers the application and endorsement process for over 20 merit-based national scholarships and 6 Emory internal awards. (We also provide advice and assistance with the application process for a select group of nationally-competitive awards that do not require Emory endorsement.) These awards fund summer fellowship experiences, undergraduate tuition, graduate tuition, independent research, and professional placements in the US and abroad. This includes awards like the Rhodes Scholarship (graduate study at the University of Oxford in the UK), Fulbright grants (study, research, and teaching in over 100 countries abroad), the Truman Scholarship (graduate study for leaders committed to public service), and many more.

While some of the awards we administer require that applicants have a very high GPA in order to be competitive, many award committees are seeking candidates who have strengths in multiple areas, including academic achievement, research, service, community engagement, and/or leadership.
