Center for Fellowship & Scholarship Advising (CFSA)

The Center for Fellowship and Scholarship Advising (CFSA) assists Syracuse University’s outstanding students and alumni with applications to nationally competitive scholarships that fund research abroad, graduate study, professional placements, and other opportunities. Recent graduates can be strong candidates for these opportunities because they have combined their Syracuse education with real-world experience. From planning to application, submission to interviews, we support alumni applications to awards including: Fulbright, Gates Cambridge, Marshall, Mitchell, NSF GRFP, Luce, Rhodes, Schwarzman, Tillman, and others.
