Institutional Endorsement Required

The opportunities in this section require either an institutional nomination or endorsement. An “institutional nomination” requires that the sponsoring institution (Hunter College) is invited to nominate a limited number of candidates for consideration by the granting institution. For this reason, OPS will hold preliminary interviews for the purpose of selecting nominees to put forward. An “endorsement” requests that the sponsoring institution (Hunter College) supply a letter indicating its support for any applicants from its institution. This process also involves a round of interviews at Hunter to approve students’ applications. If after considering your application materials and interviewing all candidates the internal selection committee believes you are not ready to apply for a particular scholarship, we will not offer a letter of endorsement. Because OPS assists in the preparation of student applications for both nomination and endorsement, we have established campus deadlines that applicants must meet in order to receive the College’s support.
