Please see the appropriate link to determine which scholarships you may qualify for.
Your first step in applying for scholarships should be applying for admission to the University. You will not be awarded a scholarship unless you have been admitted.
You will be notified by postage mail and/or e-mail if you are or are not selected to receive a scholarship. For this reason, it is very important that the correct mailing and e-mail addresses are submitted on your application.
Our University will accept scholarship applications year-round, even after all deadlines have passed. However, any scholarship application submitted after the deadline will only be considered on a funds-available basis. This means that your application will be considered only in the event that the University has scholarship funds left over for the academic year, either from a student who was awarded but later chose not to enroll or if we receive additional scholarship donations throughout the year. There is no guarantee that the University will award any scholarships to those students who submit their applications after the posted deadline.
Scholarship awards are made based on a student's overall scholarship application (e.g., test scores, class rank, essay, resume, leadership, etc.) and not just on a single criterion.
Scholarships are awarded for the full academic year and not for just one semester. For example, if you are awarded a $1,000 scholarship, you will receive $500 in the fall semester and $500 in the spring semester.
Some scholarships are awarded based on your current major. We ask that you please notify the Scholarship Office if you are a recipient of a major-specific scholarship and decide to change your major. You should also contact the Scholarship Office if you decide to change your major after you have submitted your scholarship application(s) so that we can update your application with the correct information.
