The University of Portland Fellowship & Grants office needs yours assistance with identifying talented students who might be strong candidates for competitive fellowships and grants. In the Fall 2009 we started T.I.P.
T.I.P. stands for Talent Identification Program. The purpose of T.I.P. is to provide a system for faculty members and staff to identify high achieving students early in their college careers as potential candidates for various fellowships, grants, and scholarships. Once identified, the Office of Fellowships & Grants will notify the student that someone on campus thinks they are a strong potential candidate for prestigious fellowships and grants and invite the student to complete a Prospective Scholarship Applicant form. After the student has completed a Prospective Scholarship Applicant form, we will meet and work with the student to identify goals for their upcoming years, identify potential scholarship opportunities, and assist in applying for appropriate awards.
What type of students is T.I.P. looking for?
We are looking for students not only with good grades, but with the desire and ambition to excel.
