How to apply


Tassel time

May 20 is creeping up. Have you booked your hotel or restaurant yet? It’s not too soon. Find dining and lodging options on the commencement site.


Quite continental

Your student yearns to study abroad, but you’re concerned about the costs. Sound familiar? Encourage your son or daughter to stop by the Office for National Fellowships and ask about the Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship. UNH students have had tremendous success earning Gilmans, and the fellowships office can help them apply. Six Wildcats are studying abroad this semester thanks to these need-based awards. Article


Research tourism?

An idea for an intellectually stimulating weekend: Come to the Undergraduate Research Conference (URC). Mud season is the perfect time to visit UNH and hear undergraduate researchers explain their scientific, scholarly and creative endeavors. They will knock your socks off. Dozens of individual URC events between April 17 and 22 comprise the conference, which is the largest of its kind in the nation. It’s a great excuse for a long weekend in one of New Hampshire’s most happening regions, and with roughly 1,800 students presenting, there’s an excellent chance yours might be one of them. See you at URC! Learn more


Say yes to the dress?

Plaid flannel may be all the rage right now, but none was spotted on this runway. In preparation for next week’s Career and Internship Fair, the Career and Professional Success office held a Dress for Success fashion show on February 23, showcasing what to wear — and what not to wear — to work or on a job interview. The UNH social team was there. Video
