National Fellowships and Scholar Programs

Fellowship Peer Mentors

Our mentors are current USC students who have won national awards such as the Hollings, Goldwater, Truman, Udall, Mt. Vernon, NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program and the Critical Language Scholarship (CLS). Peer Mentors can answer your questions and encourage you to apply.

Meet a Peer Mentor

You can find them helping at workshops and presenting at Discover USC in April. Mentors love to share their experiences and encourage future applicants.

Coffee with a Peer Mentor

What's it really like to apply for a Hollings or Goldwater? How do you show you're really ready for an immersive language program such as the CLS? Talk to someone who knows. 

Our Coffee with a Peer Mentor Program is designed to make meetings with peer mentors easier and more natural. Email us at to request a meet-up, and we’ll connect you. The coffee is our treat!

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
