Office of Nationally Competitive Awards

The Office of Nationally Competitive Awards (ONCA) assists students in strategically developing strong careers throughout their time at Southern Miss, as well as helping them to prepare the strongest applications possible for national scholarship opportunities such as Truman, Marshall, Goldwater, Rhodes and many others. These scholarships assist in the cost of study abroad, research or graduate school. The office is housed in the Honors College but is available to help all students, including graduates and alumni.
