Annual scholarships reflect a donor’s commitment to support a scholarship for a specific number of years and choose the criteria in which recipients are chosen.

Scholarships are awarded through the Financial Aid Office. There is no additional application and all eligible students are considered for available scholarships; but not all eligible students receive scholarships due to funding limitations.

The following list of scholarships provides basic information on eligibility criteria which may be subject to change over time. Scholarships are awarded based on funding being available from the donor or endowment.
