There are literally hundreds of scholarships to which undergraduate students
and post graduates can apply. Many of these external scholarships and fellowships
require that the student apply through the university which they attend. See Undergraduate Opportunities and Seniors and Post Graduate Opportunities to view several of these scholarships, and their respective UD faculty advisors.
University of Dallas students are encouraged to contact Dr. Sally Hicks for those
scholarships and fellowships which require a school nomination or endorsement and
to get information regarding other scholarships and fellowships, as well as application
The faculty advisors will work with well-qualified individuals in the preparation of the application; however, it is up to each student to submit a well-written application and to get the supporting documents in order to be nominated.
While the major fellowships and scholarships such as Rhodes, Fulbright and Truman require a school nomination, many others do not. For those, as well as the nominated scholarships, we do recommend that students seek assistance from the scholarship/fellowship advisor, but also from faculty in their area of study, their Academic Advisor, the Academic Success Office, and Dr. Hicks to insure that each application is representative of the students' best work.
