ONIF Open House 2020

ONIF | Leavey Center, Suite I | 310.338.3792

The Office of National & International Fellowships (ONIF) assists LMU students and alumni interested in pursuing external fellowships that support their academic and career goals. Many fellowships require candidates to apply through their university or alma mater, which in turn sponsors the candidate. ONIF facilitates this sponsorship.

Through ONIF, students can learn about fellowship opportunities available through governments, private donors, foundations, civic organizations, and corporations. We also offer strategic planning and advice for submitting a competitive application package.

To get an overview of various funding opportunities, view ONIF's Fellowship Categories. Students interested in applying for fellowships are encouraged to schedule an appointment with ONIF or call 310.338.3792.
