Office of Undergraduate Scholarship (OUS)


The Office of Undergraduate Scholarship was established to support the Quality Enhancement Plan, FGCUScholars: Think. Discover. Write. With faculty and staff members from across campus, we work together to foster student scholars within their disciplines. This office supports student research, creative endeavors, and scholarly activities as ways to enhance and professionalize student skills in writing, critical thinking, and information literacy. These skills are foundational to successful, impactful, and meaningful lives. Please use this website to find resources and opportunities.

I look forward to seeing you around campus.

Director of the Office of Undergraduate Scholarship and FGCUScholars
