    Nationally competitive awards are scholarships, grants, and fellowships that are funded by sources independent of Winthrop University and are generally based on the criteria of academic performance, financial need, community affiliations, and other specific elements.

    You can begin the process of learning about and applying for awards in several ways:

    Check out our "How To" page to learn the process of applying for awards.

    You can make/edit an appointment with LeeAnn Pounds through Navigate or e-mail. Appointments are available in-person Wednesdays and Fridays. Virtual appointments are available Monday to Friday. We look forward to working with you again!

    You can still apply for that award, if eligible. If you find something that we do not have on our listing page, feel free to e-mail us and let us know! You can also discuss these awards with LeeAnn Pounds to ensure they fit the criteria of "nationally competitive" and are worth pursuing.
