For help in choosing who to talk with, here are our general areas of specialty:
- Jen Bess - nominated competitions (e.g. Rhodes, Marshall, Truman, Goldwater, Udall)

All of our national fellowship advisors are cross-trained and happy to talk with you about a variety of competitions. We look forward to working with you!
Engage with Faculty Experts
At the University of South Carolina, you don't have to navigate the national fellowship
process alone. We encourage you to reach out to the faculty and staff experts across
campus to help you consider, apply for and win awards.
