National and International Scholarships & Fellowships

The Office of National Scholarships and International Scholarships and Fellowships is dedicated to providing guidance and support for all high achieving students at Texas Tech as they compete for national and international awards across all disciplines. The scholarships and fellowships are for creative, motivated, academically strong students who are leaders in and out of the classroom.

We identify, recruit and mentor students who apply for prestigious scholarships such as the Truman, Rhodes, Fulbright, Marshall and Mitchell. We also work with faculty members to recruit candidates, write strong letters of recommendation, review applications and essays, and provide mock interviews for applicants. This process ensures that students’ applications are of the highest caliber and reflect the students’ excellence.

Working with All Students Across Campus

Our doors are open to all students who are interested in merit-based scholarships. We work with undergraduate and graduate students at all levels and in all fields. Texas Tech students are excellent candidates for these awards and we want to discuss your options with you! Come to a workshop or call to make an appointment today.
