National & International Scholarships and Fellowships (NISF)
Nationally competitive scholarships and fellowships not only bring a financial award, but also prestige that helps you build a distinguished career, permanent membership in a network of outstanding professionals, and life-changing experiences. The NAU Coordinator for National & International Scholarships and Fellowships helps students refine their applications and connect to resources in order to be more competitive on the national/international level.
Starting early in your search for major scholarships and fellowships is crucial:
- identify awards and opportunities of interest early in your academic career
- build a record suited to these awards' criteria
- begin work on applications months in advance of the deadline
- leave plenty of time for feedback and revisions
The NISF website can help you locate opportunities and craft a solid application draft.
To apply for a national or international scholarship requiring NAU nomination, make an appointment with the NISF coordinator (or other specified contact), with whom you will work closely. Please bring a resume.
To apply directly to other national or international scholarships, make an appointment with the NISF coordinator for advice and application feedback. Please bring a resume, list of scholarship selection criteria, and your application draft.
If applying for a local or regional scholarship, drop by during the coordinator's office hours for application feedback. Please bring a resume, list of scholarship selection criteria, and your application draft.
(To be sure of maximum assistance, please contact the coordinator well in advance of the scholarship deadline.)
For internal NAU scholarships or other financial aid, contact a counselor at NAU Financial Aid or drop by the second floor of Gammage Hall.
