'Day of Workshops' on Feb. 7 to raise awareness of national scholarships

The Office of Scholar Development at WKU is sponsoring a “Day of Workshops” on Thursday (Feb. 7) to raise campus awareness of nationally competitive scholarships and other opportunities for research, creative work and professional development.

Held in Helm 100, within the Chinese Learning Center, “Day of Workshops” provides an opportunity for students to quickly learn about the programs and application processes while interacting with WKU’s fellowship advisors, Dr. Audra Jennings, director of the Office of Scholar Development; Dr. Melinda Grimsley-Smith, coordinator of international scholarships; and Cheryl Kirby-Stokes, coordinator of nationally competitive opportunities.

Rotating 15-minute workshops will be held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.:

  • Fulbright English Teaching Assistantships – at the top of the hour,
  • Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship – on the 15s,
  • National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship – at the halves, and
  • Fulbright Scholar Program – at 45 minutes past.

“The Office of Scholar Development seeks to make nationally competitive scholarships accessible to students looking for opportunities to realize their big dreams,” Dr. Jennings said. “We are delighted to share what we do with the entire WKU community and to reach a greater number of students through these brief information sessions.”

The schedule of “Day of Workshops” was devised to address scholarships with upcoming deadlines and fit the schedules of the many successful students of the university who are taking numerous courses and are involved many extra-curricular activities. It is not necessary to stay for the entire event; each 15-minute session provides a full discussion of the topic at hand.

For more information about “Day of Workshops” connect with OSD on Facebook.

About the Office of Scholar Development: The Office of Scholar Development is committed to helping WKU students in all majors and degree programs develop the vision, experience and skills to be independent, engaged scholars. OSD welcomes the opportunity to work with students interested in national or international scholarships.
