distinguished Scholarships, Internships, and Awards

Developing a Competitive Profile

Preparation for highly competitive awards should begin in the freshman year.  Most successful applicants have a college resume that includes:

Although only a small percentage of students who apply nationally are awarded one of these scholarships, the benefits of applying are many. Applicants learn how to present themselves more effectively; gain experience interviewing and articulating their ideas and vision; challenge themselves to excel; and grow—personally and professionally!

Successful applications typically include:

  • A personal statement that is clear, succinct, and focused;
  • A distinguished academic resume;
  • Strong letters of recommendation from faculty; and,
  • A well-planned proposal for future research.

Don't be afraid to ask for help!  All students interested in applying for a distinguished scholarship or internship are encouraged to contact the Honors College.  Our faculty and staff will advise you on how to build your resume, write an effective personal statement and research plan, and request letters of recommendation.
