Foundation Scholarships

Need-based scholarships and grants are awarded based upon a student's financial need. Some scholarships are awarded based on both merit and financial need.

Institutional Scholarships

Outside Scholarships

There are many scholarship opportunities available beyond the university. As our office becomes aware of outside scholarships we will post them here so be sure to check back regularly. When searching for scholarships we highly recommend beginning with organizations you may be involved in such as Rotary Clubs, Women’s Clubs, religious organizations, and/or employer benefits (parent and/or student).
When searching for outside scholarships please pay close attention to the various application deadlines. Be on the lookout for scams -- you should never pay a fee to apply for a scholarship. Please make sure to have your resume, academic transcripts and recommendation letters readily available. Also, be prepared to write essays that demonstrate your personality as well as your writing skills.
If you receive an outside scholarship please be sure to advise our office immediately. Scholarship notices must be submitted on official letterhead from the donating organization. Checks may be mailed to:
