Make More Possible
OSD mentors WKU students applying for national scholarships to fund “academic extras” beyond what tuition covers. No other university in Kentucky has as much dedicated support for this work. We help Hilltoppers make more possible by increasing access to study abroad, research, professional experience, and more.

The Office of Scholar Development helps students make more possible.
The Office of Scholar Development (OSD) team mentors students applying for national scholarships for “academic extras” beyond what’s covered by tuition, such as study abroad, research, professional experience, and more.
From first drafts to final submissions with multiple revisions in between, OSD helps students make more possible regardless of their major or means. By conceptualizing and revising the stories they tell in application essays and interviews, students better understand their strengths, interests, and purpose—and explore multiple possible pathways to that work.
WKU students and recent alumni have earned millions of dollars in national scholarships since OSD was founded. Beyond the dollars and cents, national scholarships help students to study abroad, conduct research, complete undergraduate and graduate degrees, and change lives.
