Our Mission and Values

We advise students and alumni wishing to pursue national fellowships and scholarships.

The Office of External Fellowships (OEF) provides high quality, holistic advisement and assistance to current UIC students and recent alumni in identifying and applying for nationally- and internationally-competitive fellowships, scholarships, and grants.

OEF is guided both by a mission to promote the full potential of fellowship candidates through the application process, and by a vision for student success that places high value on the personal and professional growth that students gain through the process of aspiring to and applying for prestigious fellowships.
