Are KSU students competitive for these scholarships?
What do most of these scholarships require?
What is the ideal timing for students to begin the process of applying?
What are the first steps students should take?
Students are encouraged to make an appointment with Dr. Miles (preferably, by email at email@example.com) to discuss their interest in applying for scholarships/fellowships. If the student has a good sense of his or her field, area of interest, etc., that’s more than enough to begin! During your first meeting with Dr. Miles, students will discuss their talents, aspirations, etc. This information will be used to determine the best possible application fits. Dr. Miles also has some print materials that she is able to lend students that will allow for their extended perusal of available opportunities. In addition, Dr. Miles periodically offers university-wide workshops to anyone interested in learning more about scholarships and fellowships.
