National Scholarship and Fellowship
Mon, Apr 20 noon – 1pm Faculty-Staff Club
A variety of national fellowships are available to SDSU students to support study
abroad, undergraduate research, service learning, internships, and graduate school.
Unfortunately, many faculty and students are unaware of these opportunities and even
as students learn of them, the majority do not consider themselves to be competitive
However, there are many departments and campus programs that currently engage students
in the type of high-impact activities that are excellent preparation for these prestigious
fellowships. Faculty can play a key role in encouraging students to apply for fellowships
by 1) raising awareness of fellowship opportunities, 2) identifying students earlier
in their academic training, and 3) encouraging, mentoring and supporting students
to apply to fellowships that best match their professional goals.
In this session, presenters Michelle Lopez and Martha Enciso (Division of Undergraduate
Studies) will share national scholarship and fellowship opportunities, highlight the
benefits of applying, and discuss how faculty can assist and encourage students to
participate in the fellowship process.
