Scholarships & Fellowships

 

Honors students are eligible to apply for several scholarships that are exclusive to the Honors Program. Each of these scholarships is designed to give UHP students an enriching experience that reaches far beyond the typical classroom.

Oxford Scholarship:

An endowed UHP scholarship annually sponsors one junior student for a year of study at Mansfield College, part of Britain's University of Oxford. The application process is managed through Study Abroad. For further information, contact the Honors office. Application deadline is January 3, 2022 at 11:59 PM PST. See program details at the Study Abroad Information Portal.

 

Osberg Fellowship:

This fellowship was established through the generosity of Sally Osberg in memory of Richard H. Osberg, who served as a distinguished SCU Professor of English, the Chair of his Department, and as Director of the Honors Program and Office of Fellowships. Each Osberg Scholar receives an award of up to $3,000 for summer research wages and/or domestic travel expenses. This fellowship is an excellent way for students to prepare to compete for nationally competitive graduate fellowships such as the Rhodes, Marshall, Schwarzman, Knight-Hennessy, Fulbright, Mitchell, Truman, Goldwater, Udall, Gates-Cambridge, or the NSF Graduate Research Fellowship.

Candidates must be current sophomores or juniors in good standing with the University Honors Program who exemplify the ideals and best tradition of Santa Clara University, and have a minimum GPA of 3.3. The research mentor will be responsible for managing award funds. Application deadline is March 1.  Osberg candidates will also be considered for the Hayes Fellowship, if eligible.
