Personal Discovery

Take our SOP-Prep Course to discover which scholarships best fit your goals.

Known as the SOP, our office advises competitive UCI undergraduate students in applying for prestigious merit scholarships.

Our staff conducts outreach and manages the campus-level application evaluation and  endorsement selection processes for these national and international scholarships, all funded by outside agencies. Some awards require candidates to earn university endorsement; they cannot apply directly to the funding agency.

SOP is able to advise competitive undergraduate candidates at UC Irvine only.

Our office informs students on a select group of 21 prestigious awards that are national and international in scope, including opportunities for funded research and study at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. SOP also facilitates UCI’s processes for evaluating applications and endorsing candidates for awards requiring University nomination.
