The Office of Nationally Competitive Awards provides fellowship and grant information and support to University of Arkansas students and recent graduates, helping them build the strongest application possible with the intent of accomplishing goals including securing graduate funding, studying abroad, and gaining professional experience. To explore award opportunities, search our listing in the Fellowship and Scholarship Directory in the left-hand menu.
We assist students with a number of awards, including the Goldwater, Marshall, Truman, Gates Cambridge, Udall, NSF, and Rhodes Scholarships.
Our students received a total of $2.2 million in nationally competitive awards last year.
We seek to inform students as early as their freshmen and sophomore years about specific opportunities. We also collaborate with campus faculty and staff to identify potential student scholars, and provide information and recognition to students through workshops and events.
The Office of Nationally Competitive Awards is located in Silas H. Hunt Hall, Room 232. Please call (479) 575-7940 to schedule an appointment.
Join us for an information session or workshop to learn more about outstanding scholarship opportunities.
