You are not required to go through any office on your campus in order to apply to the CLS Program. However, we recommend you make use of resources available on your campus to strengthen your application.
Resources on your campus may include an academic advisor, the Scholarships Office, Fellowships Office, Merit Awards Office, Study Abroad Office, Honors Program, Career Office or International Programs Office. A campus writing center may also provide helpful feedback on your essays.
The following individuals on your campus are knowledgable about the CLS Program and can provide advice on the application process for you, and support through the process:
National Fellowships Program Coordinator, Center for Undergraduate Scholarly Engagement
Assistant Director of National Fellowships
National Fellowships Program Manager
Program Director, The Graduate School
The CLS Program provides resources to help you prepare a competitive application with or without the help of an advisor:
- Review our tips and instruction video about preparing a quality application (links to a video)
