National Scholarships: Office of Scholar Development (OSD)

Our Mission

The Office of Scholar Development (OSD) is committed to helping students on all campuses and in all majors and degree programs develop the vision, experience, and skills to be independent, engaged scholars. OSD encourages research and creative activities and helps WKU students achieve locally, nationally, and internationally. Beyond assisting students to conceptualize a research/creative agenda, OSD supports students throughout the process of finding and applying for scholarships, internships, and a variety of post-graduation opportunities. From grants to graduate school, OSD staff members will work with individual students to write strong applications and proposals.

Additionally, we offer support to faculty and staff members in their endeavors to assist individual students and promote research, creative activities, and achievement university-wide. We collaborate with faculty and staff to apply for grants to create opportunities for students, develop workshops related to our mission, and celebrate the successes of WKU students and their faculty advisors.
