Applicant and Scholar Resources

In addition to advisors, we also offer a variety of helpful resources for both fellowship applicants and Top Scholars.

For fellowship applicants, if you let us know that you are applying for a competition, we can give you access to our Blackboard Organization (National Fellowships Advising), where among other resources you will find past winning applications from UofSC national fellowship winners. We can also supply you with a quiet space and infrastructure for video interviews and phone calls as required by some competitions.  That can be reserved by emailing one week in advance.

For Top Scholars, cards and envelopes for writing donor thank you notes are available to pick up at scheduled times. If you have questions, email
