Kennesaw State hosting workshop on scholarships and fellowships
Session helps students in selecting and applying for prestigious awards
KENNESAW, Ga. (Jul 3, 2019) — Kennesaw State University students are invited to attend a workshop to learn about the variety of national and international scholarships and fellowships for which they can apply.
The workshop, open to all Kennesaw State students, will be July 10 from 12-1 p.m. in room 205 of the Carmichael Student Center on the Kennesaw campus. Michelle Miles, KSU’s director of national and international scholarships and fellowships, will instruct students how to discover, select, and apply for scholarships, craft successful personal statements, and compose an academic portfolio.
“As we progress toward our goal of becoming one of the top R2 universities in the country, having an increasing number of students receiving prestigious awards and scholarships is a key element of our goal to drive student success,” Miles said. “Every time a Kennesaw State student earns this type of recognition, it also elevates the University’s profile globally.”
Miles works in the Honors College and assists current and former KSU students in their application processes for prestigious undergraduate and postgraduate awards such as the Rhodes, Marshall, Mitchell, Fulbright, and Goldwater awards.
While many scholarship applications are submitted in the fall or spring semester of a student’s senior year, Miles pointed out that the most successful applicants begin working on their application long beforehand. Ideally, students should identify the award(s) for which they plan to apply at least six months ahead of time and create a timeline toward completion, she said.
