Office of Distinguished Scholarships (ODS)
Carolina students have a knack for winning distinguished national and international scholarships and fellowships. In fact, Carolina has produced more Rhodes Scholars in the past 10 years than any other public university in the nation and more Luce Scholars than any other college or university in the nation.
The Office of Distinguished Scholarships (ODS) provides a central location for information about distinguished awards and assists all Carolina students and alumni in putting their best foot forward when applying for such awards. Our staff is available to advise applicants on their applications, suggest interviewing strategies, and connect applicants with faculty members who can assist with writing project proposals.
In addition, ODS assists in the institutional vetting process called endorsement for prestigious scholarships and fellowships, including the Rhodes, Marshall, and Truman Scholarships and the Luce Scholars Program.
