Admitted students who apply by December 1 will be considered for merit-based awards. Scholarships are highly competitive. Scholarship offers are based on a careful and thorough review of information provided in the application, a student’s academic strengths and performance, and financial need. Other factors considered when awarding scholarships is the overall competitiveness of the applicant pool and available funding. There is no specific set of academic credentials that guarantees an award. No separate application is required, and scholarships are renewable provided the student maintains full-time enrollment status and meets the minimum academic criteria set for each scholarship.
