Office of Scholar Development
Robert Morris University Office of Scholar Development is dedicated to helping our most ambitious undergraduate students achieve their intellectual and professional goals. We help students assess their strengths, explore opportunities, and complete applications for prestigious national and international awards.
At the Office of Scholar Development, you’ll get help with writing a personal statement, planning a research proposal, requesting recommendations, and preparing for scholarship interviews.
In addition to this one-on-one help, students can also take a one- credit Honors Scholar Development course which can further aid in the development of a competitive application.
In the 2017-2018 academic year Robert Morris University upperclassmen have been nominated to become Rhodes, Marshall, Fulbright, Knight-Hennessey, and Truman Scholars.
Several seniors have also applied for National Science Foundation (NSF) grants to pursue doctoral degrees. Others have applied for an NSF-funded research experience for graduates.
