Under the support and guidance of faculty mentors, Bryant Scholars pursue a path that prepares them to compete for prestigious awards – such as Fulbright, Truman, Marshall, and Schwarzman scholarships – that advance their academic research and careers.
Who is a Bryant Scholar?
A Bryant Scholar is committed to thinking, questioning, and pursuing meaningful work that promotes scholarship in any or all of the following:
- Scholarship of Discovery: academic work that advances knowledge by conducting empirical research, historical investigation, theory development, and other scholarly inquiries
- Scholarship of Integration: working across disciplines using data in a meaningful way to connect ideas and produce new insights and knowledge in order to respond to intellectual problems and pressing human needs
- Scholarship of Application: the practice and application of the outcomes of academic discovery toward the benefit of individuals, groups, corporations, and society as a whole
- Scholarship of Engagement: teaching, research, and/or service applied to promote public good and to address pressing social, civic, and ethical problems in a community or society
Prestigious national and international scholarships and fellowships, including Fulbright, Marshall, Truman and Schwarzman awards, are available to undergraduate and graduate students.
