Developing undergraduate scholars through nationally competitive scholarships, fellowships, and postgraduate opportunities

The College Center for Scholarly Advancement (CCSA) supports current undergraduate members of the College, recent graduates and College alumni by providing information and guidance about nationally competitive funding opportunities, graduate school and associated application processes. CCSA staff members provide general support to students by identifying relevant opportunities and assisting in strategically planning for those opportunities, closely mentor students through rigorous application processes, and facilitate campus endorsement procedures when relevant. Student and alumni are encouraged to use the searchable database to browse available scholarships, fellowships, and post-graduate opportunities.
