External Scholarships & Fellowships Advising

What We Do:   External Scholarships & Fellowships Advising seeks to create a culture where SBU students and postdocs consider applying for nationally competitive awards early in their careers. We work to recruit promising applicants and to support them in developing their materials. Nationally competitive fellowships generally include merit-based funding for students and postdocs to support study, experiential learning and research domestically or abroad. Our advising focuses on awards that require an on-campus nomination or interview process, but we can be consulted on a variety of opportunities.

What We Provide:

  • One-on-one advising
  • Essay draft review
  • Interview preparation and mock interviews
  • Professional skills development workshops
  • Informational sessions on scholarships and fellowships
  • Connections to faculty, staff, and off-campus resources
