NCAT Extraordinary Opportunities

The National Scholarships and Fellowships Coordinator helps NC A&T's undergraduate students, graduate students, and alumni learn of and apply for nationally competitive scholarships and fellowships, regardless of University Honors Program membership or current scholarship status. These extraordinary opportunities are external to NC A&T and they span a wide range of experiences. Many of these extraordinary opportunities (EOs) are fully funded and are connected to undergraduate as well as graduate degree programs and internships, international programs and activities, language programs, and independent projects and research.

Several nationally competitive and prestigious EOs have a two-part application process. Before students and alumni can apply in the national competition, they must first apply in the campus competition to gain nomination, or endorsement. Applicants should therefore put their best foot forward for the campus competition. Campus application deadlines for this endorsement may be anywhere from four weeks to four or more months before the national deadline. Applicants should also allot at least four weeks before the national deadlines for non-endorsed EOs.
