Scholar Development: Professor Resources

The Office of Scholar Development provides information, outreach, and support to RMU students in all majors who have the potential to become candidates for nationally competitive scholarships and fellowships.

Each year a number of national and international organizations offer a variety of scholarships recognizing achievement in academics and the potential to contribute to society.  Exceptional undergraduate students who plan to advance their academic, foreign language, civic, or leadership qualifications are encouraged to evaluate their eligibility for these prestigious awards throughout their undergraduate career. The following chart highlights opportunities for students by major. If you believe a student may be a good candidate for an award, ask the student to schedule an appointment with the Office of Scholar Development, fellowships@rmu.edu or michalenkoj@rmu.edu
