National Fellowships and Scholar Programs

Getting Started in National Fellowships

Whether you're a first-year student or graduate student, a future civic leader or a dedicated researcher, national fellowships offer something for anyone. At USC, we have a team dedicated to guiding students through the national fellowships process. Reach out to us today to learn how you can become part of this tradition of success! 

1. Explore your options.

Take a look at our database of competitions and deadlines to find a fellowship (or more!) that interests you.

2. Check out our workshops.

If we have any upcoming or recorded information sessions and workshops on fellowships that interest you, plan to attend or watch. Information sessions cover an array of fellowships around a theme, while workshops are focused on a particular fellowship and its application process.

3. Make an appointment.

Make an appointment with a fellowship advisor to meet one-on-one to talk about your fellowship interests and how we can guide you in the process! Find us under Involvement and Engagement.

4. Complete your Candidate Profile. 

Complete your Candidate Profile before your appointment, so we can learn a little bit about you and what you want to talk with us about.

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
