Scholarship/Fellowship Listings

The following is a list of some of the most well-known national scholarships. Their applications require a considerable amount of time, thought, and preparation. It is advisable to work ahead of the college and award deadlines -- even as much as six months -- in order to be competitive. Most of these scholarships require some form of institutional endorsement from Providence College. Contact Dr. William Hogan, the director of the Center for Engaged Learning, for more information.

The awards are listed with a link to their website. Students should use the websites to familiarize themselves with the qualifications and application process for those awards that interest them. For a brief summary of each award, please click on the links below.
