prestigious national and international scholarship opportunities

The University Honors Program encourages and assists students in seeking special scholarship opportunities including prestigious national and international awards such as:

Rhodes Scholarship

"Rhodes Scholarships bring outstanding students from many countries around the world to the University of Oxford. Applications are sought from talented students without restriction as to their field of academic specialization or career plans although the proposed course of study must be available at Oxford, and the applicant's undergraduate program must provide a sufficient basis for further study in the proposed field. Through the years, Rhodes Scholars have pursued studies in all of the varied fields available at the University of Oxford." For more information, visit http://www.rhodesscholar.org/.

Barry M. Goldwater Scholarship

"The Barry M. Goldwater Scholarship and Excellence in Education Program was authorized by the United States Congress in 1986 to honor Senator Barry M. Goldwater, who served his country for 56 years as a soldier and statesman, including 30 years of service in the U.S. Senate. The creation of this program pays tribute to the leadership, courage, and vision of Senator Goldwater and establishes in his name an endowed recognition program to foster and encourage excellence in science and mathematics."

"The purpose of the Barry M. Goldwater Scholarship and Excellence in Education Foundation, as stated in the enabling legislation, is to alleviate a critical current and future shortage of highly qualified scientists, mathematicians, and engineers. A more realistic statement of the purpose, in today's terms, is to provide a continuing source of highly qualified individuals to those fields of academic study and research."

Marshall Scholarship

"The Marshall Scholarship is a highly competitive, merit-based award for graduate study in any discipline at any British University. As future leaders with a lasting understanding of British society, Marshall Scholars strengthen the enduring relationship between the British and American peoples, their governments and their institutions. Marshall Scholars are talented, independent and diverse, and their direct engagement with the United Kingdom through its best academic programs enhances their intellectual and personal growth."

Fulbright Scholarship

"Fulbrighters are offered unique opportunities for enrichment and leadership development as well as access to facilities and a vast community of alumni. From its inception, the Fulbright Program has fostered bilateral relationships in which other countries and governments work with the U.S. to set joint priorities and shape the program to meet shared needs. The world has been transformed in ensuing decades, but the fundamental principles of international partnership and mutual understanding remain at the core of the Fulbright Program’s mission."
