ONSA To Offer Spring Scholarship Deadline Info Sessions, Workshops

Friday, March 1, 2019

With multiple Spring scholarship deadlines looming, The Office of National Scholarship Advisement (ONSA) is here to help. ONSA is hosting a series of scholarship workshops and information sessions through March and April.  These sessions promise to provide a solid launching pad for current juniors interested in applying for scholarships with fall 2019 semester deadlines.

Topics covered include Study in Asia, National Scholarships for Study in the U.K. and Ireland, the Fulbright U.S. Student Program (research or teaching English abroad), the Truman Scholarship (public policy), and the Soros Fellowship (graduate school).

Workshops on the nuts-and-bolts of scholarship applications, such as How to Write a Personal Statement and “Translating Your Experiences into Scholarship Applications, will also be offered.

All spring national scholarship info sessions require online registration, with some sessions having limited spacing; students are encouraged to apply early.

ONSA is committed to educating the UMass Amherst community about nationally competitive scholarships, and mentoring students and recent alumni in their pursuit of these opportunities. They provide advisement and support to academically talented students through their application process for highly competitive scholarships, including essay reviews, reflection conversations, and interview practice.
