Prestigious Scholarships & Fellowships

Have you ever dreamed...

...about studying at Oxford University? Pursuing advanced research at MIT?  Where will you go after your studies conclude here?  

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 process advice.

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.
