Many Chancellor’s Scholars have competed favorably in these competitions, and others have used their applications as a foundation to apply successfully for other opportunities. The session will outline the Fulbright, Gates Cambridge, George Mitchell, Marshall, Rhodes, Churchill, and Luce Scholars programs and provide tips on creating competitive applications.
