Title: Supporting Students with Scholarship/Fellowship Preparation
Mentor: Joan Hawthorne, Assistant Provost for Assessment and Student Learning
Skills required: An individual engaged in this work will need some degree of technological competence in order to help with maintenance of the program website and database, plus the development of recruitment materials. The person should also be a comfortable writer and skilled at developing productive working relationships with undergraduate students.
Project Description: The broad aim of this project is to improve UND's success in identifying and supporting potential candidates for national and international scholarships or other honors. This aim can be achieved through strong efforts to identify interested students early, provide them with information that will allow them to make good choices consistent with their aspirations, create a community of like-minded and achievement-oriented undergraduate students, inform these students (and others who may also be interested) about scholarship opportunities which may be appropriate for their strengths and goals, and support them through the application process. The person selected to work on this project will assist with various aspects of this project, depending on his/her specific skills and interests. At the least, the individual will help with outreach and publicity efforts, including website and database maintenance and the development of promotional and recruitment materials and strategies. Ideally, the selected individual will also work directly with undergraduates in any of several possible ways, e.g., individual student recruitment, one-on-one research to identify scholarship opportunities matched with individual student background, working with interested undergrads and others on campus to develop a "mentorship community," etc. Details will be negotiated with the selected candidate.
