Frequently Asked Questions
What opportunities are out there?
We've listed on the Hofstra Scholarship Nexus pages several of the most well-known prestigious scholarships for post-B.A. study and travel. Ours is not a complete listing of all such opportunities. Start by reviewing our list, and exploring the websites associated with each program. Next, we suggest you turn to the University of California, Berkeley search engine, to uncover several substantial, and yet less well-known scholarship programs.
Do I qualify?
The awards listed on this site are all highly competitive. Typically, students have outstanding academic records, and have been highly active in the campus or broader community. Some programs specify GPA minimums, but not all do. Since the application process often requires a serious commitment of time and energy both by the applicant but also by members of the university, students are encouraged to be realistic when assessing their chances. All students are encouraged to have a preliminary conversation Associate Dean Neil Donahue, coordinator of Post-Bac. Scholarships before beginning the application process for any of these competitions.
