Fellowship Opportunities for rising juniors through graduating seniors

Attention Fall 2014 Fulbright U.S. Student Grant Applicants:
The campus nomination timeline for the 2014-15 Fulbright Scholarship competition cycle has been updated and posted on the student fellowships website. Students interested in applying should consult the Fellowships Office as soon as possible to discuss their Fulbright interests. Application materials must be prepared and revised over the summer in preparation for review by the campus evaluation committee at the start of the fall semester.

Fall 2014 Rhodes, Marshall, and Mitchell Scholarship Competitions for Study in the UK and Ireland:
Students graduating in 2014 or 2015 who wish to be considered for University nomination this fall for the Rhodes, Marshall, or Mitchell Scholarships need to declare their intent to apply and submit the completed Fellowships Preliminary Questionnaire (see fellowships website) no later than May 28th.  Summer preparation of the application is required. Complete, revised applications and recommendation letters will be due in August for review  by the UR faculty nominating committee. Consult Fellowships Office for further details.

Rising Juniors w/Interest in Public-Service Careers: Could You Use $30K for Your Graduate Degree in Preparation for Your Work as a Change Agent?
Consider applying for the Truman Scholarship. If you aspire to Public Service Leadership
and have been extensively involved as a leader in campus government and extracurricular activities, have a significant record of community service or civic engagement, hold strong opinions on socio-political issues, and participate in political activities, then you may be a potential Truman Scholar. The Truman Scholarship Program also provides paid internships, mentoring and
professional development activities. Only students of junior standing (graduating in 2016), and selected 3rd-year seniors, may be nominated by UR for the Truman Scholarship.
Consult the Fellowships Office this summer if interested in being considered for nomination.
