How to Apply

Current Students

Currently enrolled students must fill out theĀ Continuing Scholarship Application by March 1 to be considered for all departmental scholarships, as well as many college- and university-wide scholarships.

Some scholarships are only for students who show a demonstrated financial need and require the completion of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). It is recommended that all students complete the FAFSA each year, regardless of their family financial status.
