Scholarship and fellowship workshops planned for Kennesaw State students


Students will learn how to select and apply for prestigious awards

KENNESAW, Ga. (Jan 28, 2020) — Kennesaw State University will offer two workshops for students to learn about the variety of national and international scholarships and fellowships for which they can apply.

The workshops, on both the Kennesaw and Marietta campuses, are open to all KSU students. The sessions are scheduled from 12-1 p.m. on Feb. 12 in room 205 of the Carmichael Student Center on the Kennesaw Campus and Feb. 19 in room 104 of the Mathematics Building on the Marietta 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. Miles works in the KSU Journey 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.

“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 pointed out that successful scholarship applicants typically begin working on their application well in advance. 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.
