The SOP office maintains a library of past scholarship winners’ applications; descriptions and selection process information for merit scholarships; examples of successful CVs, recommendation letters, and scholarship essays; and books on interview preparation.

Our Annual Merit Scholarships seminars present practical information and tips on applying for prestigious scholarships. Additionally, the staff presents workshops in response to requests from academic units, clubs, and other campus groups.

SOP staff can help connect students with past UCI scholarship winners, who can share their experiences about the process and insider tips on becoming a successful candidate.

May be made by appointment. Please see our Advising Appointments page for more information about how to prepare and schedule an appointment.
