The function of the National and International Scholarship Awards Committee (Scholarship Committee) is to select and support students for nationally-competitive post-graduate fellowships and scholarships such as Fulbright, Goldwater, Marshall, Truman, Carnegie, and Rhodes.
Members of the committee include faculty members from a wide-range of disciplines in the School of Arts and Sciences and the School of Engineering. The committee is chaired by the dean of academic advising and undergraduate studies. Any full-time faculty member in A&S&E may serve on the committee. Staff members whose positions support student writing or the administrative process of submitting the scholarship nominations or applications also serve on the committee. Members are appointed to a two-year term.
Committee members are expected to devote at least four hours in October to interviewing and providing feedback to Fulbright candidates. After October, committee members can expect to serve on selection subcommittees to review applications for other scholarships such as Rhodes, Marshall, Goldwater, Truman, Carnegie, and Astronaut; workload for each selection process requires approximately a few hours to review applications and one hour to meet to determine our nominees. Committee members are expected to attend a training session for the Fulbright process in September and are invited to a reception to honor the students who have won Fulbrights and other scholarships over the course of the academic year. Occasionally, committee members may be asked to work with an individual student to revise a scholarship essay if the committee determines the student has potential but needs assistance in crafting a viable description of his/her research or proposed project. Committee members advise students about their application essays, interview candidates for the more competitive scholarships, and provide expertise on the quality of student applications in the various fields (e.g., humanities, natural sciences, engineering, public policy, economics, etc).
This committee is open to all full-time voting-eligible faculty members, including professors of the practice, lecturers, and senior lecturers.
