The Office of Competitive Fellowships hosted an Awards Reception and Breakfast April 29 honoring faculty and students who were either recently nominated for or have received nationally competitive scholarships and fellowships.

Some of the awards were deferred or shortened due to the Covid-19 pandemic, but the Awards Reception and Breakfast was a way to honor the success of our faculty and students. The reception also was attended by UToledo President Gregory Postel and faculty from supporting colleges and departments.

The Office of Competitive Fellowships advises UToledo students on national scholarship and fellowship applications. Ultimately, the goal of the Office of Competitive Fellowships is for each student to learn and grow through the fellowship application process.
