Information Sessions, Workshops, and Prep-Shops

Undergraduate students, graduate students, and UNC alumni can gain valuable insight and useful tips on applying for distinguished scholarships and fellowships. A number of information sessions, workshops and prep-shops are held throughout the year to provide advice and answer questions. These sessions are especially helpful for students interested in applying for endorsed scholarships and learning more about the endorsement application process.
