Scholarships

The 2017 scholarship application cycle is now open.  The deadline to apply for 2017 scholarships is Wednesday, February 8, 2017 at 4:00pm.

The college awards over $50,000 in scholarships annually, in amounts ranging from $500 to $2,000. Scholarship applications are accepted during the Spring semester and funds are disbursed during the Fall semester.  The Scholarship Committee will make recommendations on each merit-based scholarship based on applicant qualifications and donor-stipulated conditions. Students are eligible to apply for up to three scholarships, with a maximum of one scholarship awarded per student. Incomplete, late and/or handwritten applications will not be processed.

Important Notes about Scholarships:

  • Qualifications vary by scholarship, so please review the criteria carefully before applying.
  • Previous year scholarship recipients are ineligible to receive the same scholarship in back-to-back years. (For example: If you received the Allen/Holyoak/Varnes scholarship in 2016 you are NOT eligible for this scholarship in 2017.)
  • Attendance at the Fall Scholarship Convocation, scheduled for September 15, 2017, is MANDATORY for all award recipients.  This includes online/UFO students and students who graduate in spring or summer of 2017.  Failure to attend the convocation event will result in award forfeiture.
  • If a student changes his/her major outside of the College or leaves the University for any reason between the time they receive notification of the award and the financial award disbursement date, the recognition and financial award will be forfeited. It is the student’s responsibility to notify the College immediately of any change.
