Information for Faculty

We hope you find this information helpful. Please contact us with the names and contact information of students you want to refer for nationally competitive scholarships so they can have an initial appointment with the coordinator and complete an intake questionnaire. This helps us to follow up on student applications.

Faculty Handbook

The Prestigious Scholarship Office is pleased to provide a handbook to faculty as a reference to the operations of our office and as a guide to working with students in attaining national and international scholarships and fellowships.
