    Office of National Scholarship Advisement

    The Office of National Scholarship (ONSA) supports the University of Mississippi’s mission to engage minds, transform lives and serve others by helping students become effective citizen-scholars and apply for national scholarships.

    National scholarships are competitive awards that reward scholastic achievement and civic engagement. Typically they fund study, research, or teaching in the United States and abroad.

    These merit-based scholarships recognize leadership potential and engagement with the world’s economic, social, political, and environmental issues.

    There are many things students can do to become competitive for such awards. It all starts with becoming engaged with your classes, your professors, and your community–starting your freshman year.

    Interested UM students are encouraged to contact Dr Vivian Ibrahim, Interim Director of the Office of National Scholarship Advisement (ONSA) to learn more, or attend any of the workshops.
