Next Steps

You must complete the following steps in order to apply for the University of Notre Dame endorsement for the Mitchell Scholarship. Even if you are not a current undergraduate and therefore do not require an endorsement, we still encourage you to contact us for assistance with your application. You can access the Mitchell Scholarship application directly here.

  1. Review the eligibility requirements on this page to ensure that you are (or will be) eligible to apply.
  2. Review the calendar of events and deadlines on this page to ensure that the campus application deadlines have not passed.
  3. Complete the brief Declaration of Interest form and submit a resume via email to fellows@nd.edu.
  4. If you are a current undergraduate, complete the application for University endorsement.
    1. If it is before the Spring Endorsement Application Deadline, complete the Spring Application for University Endorsement (Google Form). We suggest that you use this PDF version to compose your responses in a word processor and then copy-and-paste them into the Google Form. Please note that you only need to submit one endorsement application, even if you are applying for endorsement for Marshall and Mitchell as well.
    2. If it is after the Spring Endorsement Application Deadline but before the Final Endorsement Application Deadline, complete the August Application for University Endorsement (Google Form). We suggest that you use this PDF version to compose your responses in a word processor and then copy-and-paste them into the Google Form. Please note that you only need to submit one endorsement application, even if you are applying for endorsement for Marshall and Mitchell as well.
