Office of Competitive Fellowships - Recipients


The learning process when applying for competitive, national scholarships and fellowships encompasses more than winning. Through the application process, students engage in intellectual risk-taking and benefit from participating in experiential learning and active learning strategies. Students strengthen their skills in writing, editing, presenting, and interviewing. Not all students that work with the OCF will be "recipients" in a traditional sense, but all are winners as they engage and foster a campus culture committed to student success. 

Here we celebrate the recipients of national, competitive awards and fellowships.

"Even though the process of applying for a fellowship is demanding, I believe that the effort is worth it because I’ve been able to accomplish more than I thought I could." - Katherine Patterson, Critical Language Scholarship Recipient
