Faculty Resources

Since 2014, the Office of Global Awards has sent out requests to faculty to nominate students to apply for awards like the Fulbright, Truman and Goldwater. Though it might seem like a small thing—requiring all of two minutes to send an email—it has a huge effect on the student. They are emboldened by this support. It’s quite extraordinary for us to see the motivation, excitement, and commitment that these nominated students suddenly have when they realize they have someone in their corner.

Beyond our regular calls for nomination (which we generally send out via department email), you can always nominate a student in your class by going into Albert, and selecting the student in your course roster. You’ll see that, in addition alerts about absenteeism etc., there are three categories marked “SCHOLARSHIP.” If you select one of these three categories, our office will reach out o  Faculty Support and Advice

Letters of Recommendation

Writing letters of recommendation is a time-consuming process. To make life easier, we’ve compiled some tips as to what helps and what hinders, along with basic presentation information, ethical guidelines and when to say no to a student’s request.

Faculty Involvement

We are always on the lookout for faculty who are interested in mentoring students or serving on interview and selection committees. If you’d like to be more involved in the Office of Fellowships Advising, please fill out this Google form and we’ll be in touch.

Specialized Workshops

We also partner with departments and schools across the university to run subject-specific fellowship workshops, and writing workshops (for both personal statements and grant proposals). If you’d like to know more, please email us at scholarships@nyu.edu.
