The NASPA Undergraduate Fellows Program (NUFP) is a semi structured mentoring program for undergraduates that are interested in or exploring the field of student affairs. Institutions across the United States have NUFP programs on their campuses. Students in the program are called “Fellows”, but at Oregon State University they are called “Scholars”.
The OSU NUFP program is open to current students from historically disenfranchised and underrepresented professionals including but not limited to those of racial and ethnic-minority background; those having a disability; and those identifying as LGBTQ. Students in the program should have a demonstrable interest in or exploring the field student affairs and/or higher education as a profession. In the program students are paired with a mentor currently working in the field. Currently OSU has 13 NUFP Scholar making it one of the largest NUFP programs in the region.
