Most scholarship foundations require candidates to enter their competitions via their colleges or alma maters, which in turn sponsor the applicants. Our office provides assistance to U.S. students—from first-years to seniors—and recent alumni who want to pursue their academic goals beyond LMU through a competitive national fellowship.  Through this office, currently enrolled and recent graduates can learn about the many fellowships that are available through governments, private donors, foundations, civic organizations, and corporations. We also offer strategic planning, advice, and support for completing a competitive application. 

To get an overview of various fellowship opportunities, click on the "Scholarship Listings" tab above to view fellowships by your class year. In the next few months, we will be adding a fellowships database that will allow you to search for fellowships not only by your class year, but also by your disciplinary interests and fellowship type.

Students interested in applying for fellowships are encouraged to make an appointment with Dr. Stella Setka, Director of the Office of National & International Fellowships, by emailing her at stella.setka@lmu.edu or by calling 310.338.3792. 

Unfortunately, we do not have the resources at this time to assist international students.
