Scholarship Nomination

For some scholarships and fellowships, candidates must be nominated or endorsed by their undergraduate institution in order to participate in the national competition. Scholarships requiring nomination (or endorsement) include the Beinecke, Carnegie Junior Fellows, Cooke, Goldwater, Luce, Marshall, Mitchell, Rhodes, Truman, and Udall, among others. Most scholarship competitions set a limit to the number of candidates an institution may nominate each year. For example, the University is permitted to nominate one Beinecke candidate, up to four Goldwater candidates, and up to seven Udall candidates. Scholarships requiring nomination are marked as such on our Scholarship Information page.
