Scholarships and Grants

Help With Funding

The Scholarship Resource Office is a terrific page with a wealth of information. To summarize...

  • Scholarships are awarded on the basis of merit, academic achievement, financial need, or a combination of the three.
  • Grants are a form of "gift" aid, which means they do not require repayment.
  • Check out how to search for scholarships.

The Scholarship Application Process

The application process for each scholarship is different. Essay topics also vary. The essay is a critical part of the application because it is often the only information the selection committee will have about each candidate.

And remember, you​ don't have to be admitted to apply for financial aid. But you must be admitted at the time scholarship decisions are made.​
