A national fellowship is a grant of money awarded directly to you from an organization outside of the University through a merit-based national competition. Awards are granted for both undergraduate and graduate study and can be used at UofSC or other institutions. It's never to early to engage in the process.
What is the Office of Fellowships and Scholar Programs? The Office of Fellowships and Scholar Programs (OFSP) is a close partner to the Honors College with a friendly staff that advises students pursuing nationally competitive awards and provides essay reviews, reflection conversations, and interview practice for specific national competitions, as well as pairing students with faculty mentors.
