Welcome to the Office of Fellowship & Scholarship Opportunities!

The Office of Fellowship & Scholarship Opportunities (OFSO) seeks to raise awareness in the John Jay community about national and international fellowship and scholarship opportunities and graduate programs available to students. OFSO encourages students to identify opportunities and graduate programs that will fit their personal and academic goals through advisement sessions, writing and application workshops, expert speakers and informational programs.

As a resource for undergraduate students and alumni from all disciplines, OFSO assists with the development of application materials in personal mentoring sessions that focus on crafting well-written essays, proposals and curriculum vitae that clearly articulate the strengths, accomplishments and potential for success of each applicant.

OFSO also serves as the campus contact for national and international fellowship opportunities. In that role, it coordinates the submission and evaluation of applications for awards including those that require endorsement by the College and it collects information about graduate and professional school acceptances and fellowships, scholarships and grants awarded to John Jay students and alumni.
