The Office of Premier National and International Awards

Premier Awards

The College of Arts and Sciences, with the sponsorship of the College’s Advisory Council, is proud to offer students the opportunity to apply for a number of prestigious national and international awards.

These scholarships are unlike scholarships for tuition, they can be for graduate school, going abroad, and beyond. Whether it’s studying foreign languages that are important to national security, working in a lab over the summer, studying abroad, showing commitment to the environment and public service, the Office of National and International Scholarships is here to help you realize your goals.

A sponsored opportunity to conduct research or studies in a foreign country, a premier university, or in a topic of personal significance can be a pivotal point in a person’s life, and the launch point of a career that makes a difference.
