Nationally Competitive Scholarships
What are Nationally Competitive Scholarships?
Nationally competitive scholarships are awards that are available to high achieving students throughout the U.S. They are academically competitive, and are often geared toward students who plan to pursue advanced degrees, and who are making a difference in their field. Students are encouraged to work with an advisor to prepare their applications since these awards require a considerable amount of preparation from candidates. The Office of Undergraduate Research is available to provide support to students applying for these awards.
The awards listed on the left are nationally competitive scholarships that require university nomination. Review the eligibility requirements and contact the Office of Undergraduate Research, or the UH representative listed, for more information on the awards. Be sure to also refer to our scholarship calendar for specific deadlines—many of these scholarships have internal deadlines for UH candidates as well as national deadlines.
If you have any questions, or would like more information on these awards please contact Karen Weber at the Office of Undergraduate Research or at 713-743-3367.
