Mary Floyd-Wilson, Director

The Office of Distinguished Scholarships (ODS) provides a central location for information about distinguished awards and assists Carolina students and alumni in putting their best foot forward when applying for these scholarships and fellowships. Staff members are available to provide general advising to any applicant for any nationally competitive award. They will also suggest interviewing strategies and can connect applicants with faculty members who can assist with writing project statements.

In addition, ODS administers the institutional vetting process called “endorsement” for 11 scholarship and fellowship programs, including the Rhodes, Marshall, Mitchell, Churchill, Truman, Udall, and Luce.

ODS strongly believes in educating students and alumni about available opportunities and the preparation required to compete for these prestigious scholarships.
