National Scholarship Competition

 

Welcome to the National Scholarship Competitions site

If you are interested in attending graduate school and have an exceptional undergraduate record both inside and outside of the classroom (a lofty g.p.a. is not enough), you may want to consider applying for one of the following national scholarships. Although these are among the most lucrative and prestigious fellowships available to American undergraduates, Messiah students can be competitive. Our graduates have become Rhodes, Fulbright, Carnegie, and Truman scholars and on several occasions have been finalists for the Rhodes and Marshall awards.

The time commitment involved is substantial, perhaps fifty or more hours per application, but the reward may be equally large. At the very least, you will be forced to consider your motivations and objectives for graduate education, and you will further cultivate the written and verbal presentation skills required for admission to the best graduate programs.
