About Us

The Fellowship Advising Office (FAO) helps NC State’s undergraduate students, graduate students, and alums learn of and apply for nationally competitive and prestigious awards. These awards fund a wide range of opportunities, and many are connected to undergraduate and graduate degree programs or internships, overseas opportunities, and independent projects.

Some of our services include:

  • meeting with candidates to discuss their goals and interests and to help identify matching opportunities
  • reviewing and critiquing drafts of application essays and statements
  • providing institutional endorsements for applicants who receive the campus nomination (for the awards that require nominations/endorsements)
  • submitting application materials at the national level on behalf of applicants
  • staging practice interviews for applicants selected at the national level for finalist interviews

Feel free to browse our website for awards that fit your goals and interests.
