Our Opportunities

IMPORTANT NOTE TO APPLICANTS. READ BEFORE PROCEEDING FURTHER.

Scholarship Opportunities: These require additional details beyond what is provided in your student record. Therefore, you will need to read through the opportunity and determine whether 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.

Other Scholarship Opportunities: You are being considered for many other opportunities, which do not require an additional application. You may be matched and selected based on your student record. Please complete the General Application to be considered.

Opportunity 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.

Opportunity Eligibility: The description for individual scholarships must be met to qualify for consideration. If selected, you must remain qualified to disburse the scholarship to your account. If an enrollment requirement is not listed, the university standard is a minimum of 12 credit hours for undergraduate and 9 credit hours for most graduate programs. The administering college/department may use their own discretion should selected students not be enrolled full-time.

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. File names can contain only lower- and upper-case letters, number, hyphen (-), underscore (_), and spaces. 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.
