What is the ONSF?
The ONSF influences the academic experience of UT undergraduates, encouraging them to take every advantage afforded them as members of a top-tier research institution. In collaboration with faculty, staff, and students, ONSF aims to establish a culture of rigorous undergraduate scholarship worthy of national recognition and in keeping with UT’s Top 25 vision. ONSF seeks to encourage students to expect the best of themselves; applying for nationally competitive scholarships and fellowships is an integral part of living up to those expectations.
The Office of National Scholarships & Fellowships (ONSF) supports UT undergraduates and alumni who are undertaking nationally competitive application processes. It provides support only and cannot, under any circumstances, accept responsibility for missed deadlines, incomplete applications, missing letters of recommendation or other supplementary materials, or selection outcomes at the campus or national level. The responsibility of completing and submitting an application rests solely on the student or alumni engaging in a national application process. The ONSF does not guarantee or promise any outcome.
