National and International Scholarships

Housed within the Office of Undergraduate Studies in the College of Arts & Sciences, National and International Scholarships supports undergraduate and graduate students at Baylor who want to apply for an award--a scholarship, fellowship, internship, research experience--at the national or even international level, such as the Fulbright, Truman, Gates Cambridge, Boren, and Rhodes. Many of these awards support study and research at the graduate level. Notable awards such as the Goldwater, Pickering, Humanity in Action, Critical Language Scholarship, and NSF REU (all of which you can read about in this website), however, fund student research and study at the undergraduate level--often through summer institutes, internships, and symposiums.

Because these awards are prestigious and therefore highly competitive, we advise and guide students as they consider scholarships in their area of study and germane to their professional goals. We support students as they prepare their application--an intense but satisfying experience. We also help students address additional requirements frequently essential to the scholarship application: language exams, University endorsements, formal interviews, letters of recommendation, etc.

We are not, however, affiliated with the Financial Aid Office (254-710-2611, Clifton Robinson Tower, Suite 150) at Baylor. This office can help you with the FAFSA, loans and grants, and campus scholarship opportunities for funding your Baylor education. The knowledgeable staff members of the FAO are best equipped to help you pursue funding--whether through grants, loans, or scholarships--for Baylor tuition and fees.
