Office of Nationally Competitive Scholarships

We have an entire office dedicated to helping exceptional students compete for national scholarships.

The Office of Nationally Competitive Scholarships (ONCS) at the University of Arizona helps undergraduate students, graduate students and alumni compete annually for a number of nationally competitive scholarships. These external awards, usually funded by foundations or government agencies, provide money and recognition across a range of disciplines and interests.

Please note that although the ONCS is housed in the W.A. Franke Honors College, ONCS serves the entire student body.
