Applying for Scholarships

We encourage all students to complete the online scholarship application, regardless of their circumstances. By completing the 'Period' section and first three optional sections (Personal, Essays, and Need) you will be considered for all possible scholarships offered by the Financial Aid Office:

  • academic
  • need-based
  • private

If you complete the final four optional sections, you will be considered for those specific scholarships.

You must apply for scholarships on or before posted deadlines, even if you have not yet been admitted to the university. Your application for scholarships will be processed once you are admitted.
