The university’s signature merit-based scholars programs, housed within the Office of Scholars Programs (OSP), bring together students from each of the academic divisions to create unique academic and cultural communities in which to share, learn, challenge, make friends, and exchange views and ideas about what is possible in a global environment. 

If you wish to apply to one (or all) of these programs, first start your application via the Common or Coalition Application. The optional Writing Supplement serves as our application for our Signature Scholar Programs. You’ll be asked to respond to a short answer question and an essay question for each program you apply to. This is in addition to the Common or Coalition Personal Essay.

The scholarship committees will review the required Counselor and Teacher letters of recommendation submitted with your Common or Coalition Application. To better understand you, the committees also require a third letter of recommendation.

All complete scholarship applications will be reviewed by committees, which select a group of finalists. Finalists are notified by the end of February. There will be a series of virtual events including an interview in March 2022. Finalists must attend these virtual events and the interview to remain eligible.
