About the office

The office of National Scholarships and Awards (previously the Office of Competitive Awards and Research) is sponsored by the Office of the Vice Provost for Undergraduate Education (OVPUE) and was established in Spring 2014. Its mission is to promote participation in nationally-competitive award programs and undergraduate research.

The NSA helps students pursue opportunities that are funded by agencies outside Indiana University and several awards are administered by IU offices and require a campus-level nomination before students may compete at the national or international level. Students interested in any IU administered award should contact the campus representative for that award for more information about how to apply.

The office is directed by Paul Fogleman and he was profiled in the Provost's November 8, 2022 Engage IUB newsletter.  He completed Master's degrees in International Relations (City College of New York) and Second Language Studies (Indiana University, Bloomington) and has been working at Indiana University, Bloomington since 2005.
