Criteria for Selection
No single factor will be responsible for an applicant receiving a scholarship.
Factors which are considered include:
- Academic performance
- Letter of recommendation
- Professional activities
- Extracurricular activities
- Community involvement
- Written statements
- In some cases, financial need
Please note: To be considered for Foundation scholarships that specify financial need as a requirement, you should complete a FAFSA application by February 15, 2018, or as close to that date as possible.
Both full-time and part-time students may apply. However, awards for students who are part-time (less than 12 credits for undergraduates and 6 credits for graduate students) will be prorated.
The Scholarship Committee will review applications and make the selections in the spring. Winners of scholarships for the 2018-2019 academic year will be notified by e-mail or mail by April 13th. Scholarship recipients are required to write a letter of appreciation to the scholarship donors and attend a formal award ceremony in September before payment is made for tuition.
