Global Scholarships, Fellowships, & Funding Opportunities

Funded research opportunities, study abroad scholarships, undergraduate and post-graduate scholarships and fellowships are valuable experiences that will help prepare you to reach your professional and career goals.

prestigious Global Scholarships, Fellowships, and Funding Opportunities 

Each year, New College of Florida students are awarded some of the most prestigious funded research opportunities, study abroad scholarships, undergraduate and post-graduate scholarships and fellowships. Pursuing an opportunity can be a valuable experience that will help prepare you to reach your professional and career goals.  For example, with a summer research experience through the National Science Foundation-Research Experience for Undergraduates (NSF-REU) program, you can gain valuable research experience and earn a stipend of $3,500 or more.  If you are a Pell Grant recipient, a Gilman Scholarship for Study Abroad will support a study abroad experience that can change your perception of who you are and what you can do.  National undergraduate and post-graduate scholarships provide financial support for your undergraduate studies and help you prepare for careers in research, public policy, and the foreign service.

Pathways to Professional and Career Development

Early engagement with scholarship and funding opportunities can play a valuable role in academic and career planning.

  • Applying for a scholarship or funding opportunity will help you build important transferable skills:  articulating a goal and identifying the steps to achieve the goal, writing concisely and persuasively for an audience, planning a budget, working with mentors, and managing a project.
  • Funding support for study abroad and/or summer research can provide experiences that will contribute to your thesis, other academic or career goals, at the same time they contribute to personal development, career planning and post-graduate success.
  • Developing a competitive application for national scholarship or funding opportunities can help you clarify your academic and career goals, identify programs of study or other learning experiences that will contribute to post-graduate success, and develop ways of articulating your experiences, goals, and ambitions to others.

For a one-on-one to discuss any scholarship, fellowship, or funding opportunity, or a Student Research and Travel Grant (SRTG), you can schedule a “Fellowships & Scholarships Appointment” through Handshake (tile in myNCF) with Duane Smith, the Assistant Director for Prestigious Fellowships.
