Merit-based prestigious scholarships and fellowships enable select students the opportunity
to undertake graduate studies or research experiences, either domestically or abroad.
Candidates who are awarded these scholarships have achieved meaningful recognition
and experiences of lifelong significance.
The road to earning these nationally competitive awards is rigorous and personally
challenging. Your commitment is required, but the faculty and staff of the University
of Dallas stand with you and will provide the support you need.
As you discern whether or not pursuing a prestigious fellowship is aligned to your
personal and professional goals, please use all available resources to evaluate your
options. See Undergraduate Opportunities (Freshman through Juniors) and Postgraduate Opportunities (Seniors and Graduate Students) to view several of these scholarships, and their respective UD faculty advisors.
University of Dallas students are encouraged to contact Gaby O'Neill for scholarships and fellowships which require a school nomination or endorsement
and to get information regarding other scholarships and fellowships, as well as application
UD faculty advisors will work with well-qualified individuals in the preparation of
the application; however, it is up to each student to submit a well-written application
and to get the supporting documents in order to be nominated.
While the major fellowships and scholarships such as Rhodes, Fulbright and Truman
require a school nomination, many others do not. For those, as well as the nominated
scholarships, we do recommend that students seek assistance from faculty in their
area of study, their Academic Advisor, the Academic Success Office, and Ms. Gaby O'Neill
from the Office of Personal Career Development to ensure that each application is
representative of the students' best work.
