Endowed Scholarship Application

This application is for all endowed scholarships. Most of the scholarships have GPA and major requirements that the donors require for applicants. Some of the scholarships have additional criteria that the donors have specified. The questions below will be used to determine eligibility for these. There are many scholarships that are not as restrictive. Please complete the application even if none of these questions apply to you.

The deadline for Scholarship Applications is August 1st, 2015.

Your submitted application will be reviewed by the Scholarship Committee immediately after the August 1st deadline has passed. The Committee will review all applications and make their decisions within two weeks. Successful recipients will be notified by email and may be required to write a thank-you note to the donor prior to those funds being disbursed to their Business Office account for the fall semester.
