Nationally Competitive Awards Advising

WELCOME TO NATIONALLY COMPETITIVE Awards ADVISING!

Welcome to Nationally Competitive Scholarship Advising at UNC Charlotte! While located in the Honors College, we work across campus with all undergraduate students who are applying to exciting opportunities in research, community engagement, public service, and leadership, both here in the United States and abroad.

In working with you, we identify links between interests and motivations and the competitive awards, scholarships, fellowships, and other opportunities that are a good match for you. We provide support, guidance, and assistance to you as you apply, including written feedback and interview preparation when applicable. We also arrange webinars and info sessions on various opportunities throughout the academic year.

Whatever the outcome is, students and alumni repeatedly tell us that the process of applying itself is valuable, because it invites reflection on your experiences, talents, motivations, and interests and provides ground for you to practice communicating those things clearly to others. This is a vital ability in academics, jobs, and life.

Resources we can offer you as you apply include:

Working together with faculty, advisors, staff, and others supporting your goals, we look forward to meeting you soon!

Dr. Andrew Keener, Scholars Advisor
