Fellowship Advising

Thank you for visiting Fellowship Advising! We invite you to explore the areas of this web site, do some research, and then visit us in person to discuss which nationally competitive scholarships are right for you. While these awards are competitive, they also offer you tremendous opportunites for personal growth, exploration, and exposure to extraordinary experiences that you may not otherwise get the chance to experience.

Applying to one of these awards is just the first step. Creating an application will provide you with a crash course in understanding yourself, your motivations, and your goals. Even if you don't advance in the competition, you are better prepared to move ahead in your life. We have had a number of successes over the years, and we invite you to take the first step.
