Our Opportunities

IMPORTANT NOTE TO APPLICANTS. READ BEFORE PROCEEDING FURTHER.

Applications: These require additional details beyond what is provided in your student record. Therefore, you will need to read through the applications and determine if you are eligible. If eligible, please answer the additional questions to apply. You may update and edit your application until the application deadline. If after reading a scholarship description, you know you don’t qualify, please don’t apply. Keep in mind that “recommended” does not constitute qualified.

Award Amounts: The number and amount of scholarship awards shown are for general information purposes only, and should not be considered a guarantee of what you will receive if selected. Actual award amounts vary based on students’ individual eligibility factors and funds available.

Uploading Files: If you are asked to upload a resume, letter of support, or any other supporting documentation, please be aware that the system will not allow for punctuation (commas, apostrophes, and/or periods) to be used in the file name, for example: Johnson.Resume or Hayle’s.Resume. Punctuation in the file name, except as a file extension (.docx, .pdf) will cause an error when uploading supporting documents, so make sure to check your file names. After you have uploaded your file, click on the ‘Save and Keep Editing’ button. Once you have completed the application, click on the ‘Finish and Submit’ button.
