Advising Process

At the Office of National Scholarships, we help students reflect on their own passions and goals to find opportunities that will move them forward, whether that be through studying abroad, interning, doing research, or attending prestigious graduate programs. We are here to encourage students and help them find ways to expand their education beyond the classroom.

To make an appointment with an ONS Advisor, just send us an email with your interest! Visit our staff page to pick out the right team member to email. If you aren't sure, just send us a general email at nationalscholarships@usf.edu.

In your email, be sure to let us know what you are studying, what opportunity you are interested in, your future goals, and any information you think may be relevant. You may not know exactly what scholarship you want to apply for, but we do expect students to have some goals in mind. Depending on what opportunities you hope to pursue, we may schedule an advising appointment or direct you to other resources.

Once we begin the advising process, we offer:

Guidance on Scholarship Requirements
Essay Assistance
