NASPA Undergraduate Fellows Program (NUFP)

NUFP studentsWhat is NUFP?

NASPA Undergraduate Fellow Program (NUFP) is a semi structured mentoring program for undergraduates that are interested in or exploring the field of student affairs. Students and mentors both apply for the program together. Students that are selected will then get to participate in conferences, the Dungy Leadership Institute and summer internships.


NUFP Mission

The mission of the NASPA Undergraduate Fellows Program is to increase the number of historically disenfranchised and underrepresented professionals in student affairs and/or higher education, including but not limited to those of racial and ethnic-minority background; those having a disability; and those identifying as LGBTQ.



Oregon State University is one institution that has the most number of NUFP Scholars in the program within our region. You will be able to create strong bonds with the other fellows, have great connections with your mentor and also other professionals in the field.
