The Office of Scholar Development (OSD) is hosting “Fellowships in :15” on Tuesday (Feb. 14) to raise campus awareness of nationally competitive scholarships and other opportunities to fund study abroad, research, creative work and professional development.

Office of Scholar Development will host information sessions on Feb. 14.

Held in the Honors College and International Center (HCIC) Multi-purpose Room (1011), “Fellowships in :15” provides an opportunity for students to learn about national scholarships and other opportunities in 15-minute increments. These opportunities can pay for graduate school in STEM fields or the social sciences, or fund one year abroad after graduation.

The 15-minute “drop in” sessions will be hosted by OSD staff: Dr. Audra Jennings, director of the office; Dr. Melinda Grimsley-Smith, coordinator of international scholarships; and Cory Dodds, coordinator of nationally competitive opportunities.

Workshops will begin at 9 a.m. and cover four topics every hour until 4 p.m.:

  • Fulbright Research and Study Grants (on the hour)
  • Fulbright English Teaching Assistantships (at 15 minutes past)
  • Study abroad scholarships (at half past)
  • Funding graduate school in the sciences and social sciences (at 45 minutes past)

In addition to learning about different opportunities, attendees will get a brief overview of application processes and tips for success. OSD staff will be available before and after their presentations to chat with students, answer questions and make appointments for one-on-one advising.

“WKU students frequently earn recognition in national scholarship competitions for their academic merit, community involvement, and international experiences,” Dr. Jennings said. “With ‘Fellowships in :15,’ we want to make information about these incredible opportunities accessible to all WKU students in a forum that is convenient for their busy schedules.”

About the Office of Scholar Development: The Office of Scholar Development is committed to helping WKU students in all majors and degree programs develop the vision, experience and skills to be independent, engaged scholars. OSD welcomes the opportunity to work with students interested in nationally competitive scholarships.
