BGSU-NUFP Graduate School Fellowship Award
The BGSU-NUFP Graduate School Fellowship will be awarded each year to one NUFP Fellow who enrolls in our CSP program. The recipient will receive a $1,000 award for each of his or her two years of enrollment. This $1,000 annual award will be in addition to the student’s tuition scholarship and stipend. The student will be able to use the funds for books, supplies, professional development or job search expenses. The first recipient was selected from those NUFP Fellows admitted to the CSP program for the 2007-2008 academic year.The CSP program faculty are very excited about this opportunity to support the NASPA Undergraduate Fellows Program and to assist program participants who are seeking graduate education to further their careers in our field.
Prospective students who are alumni of the NASPA NUFP program will be considered for the BGSU-NUFP Graduate School Fellowship Award automatically upon enrollment in the CSP program. NUFP alumni applying to the CSP program should remember to indicate NUFP graduation in their application materials.
