Scholarships and Awards

What are scholarships?

Scholarships are based on financial need, merit, or both, and do not have to be repaid. The source for scholarships may be the institution that the student is attending or an outside source.

Scholarship Options

Students should complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to maximize consideration for student aid.
