Criteria for Selection

No single factor will be responsible for an applicant receiving a scholarship.

Factors which are considered include:

  • Academic performance
  • Letter of recommendation 
  • Professional activities
  • Extracurricular activities 
  • Community involvement
  • Written statements
  • In some cases, financial need

Please note: To be considered for Foundation scholarships that specify financial need as a requirement, you should complete a FAFSA application by February 15, 2019, or as close to that date as possible.

Both full-time and part-time students may apply. However, awards for students who are part-time (less than 12 credits for undergraduates and 6 credits for graduate students) will be prorated.


Review Process 

The Scholarship Committee will review applications and make the selections in the spring. Winners of scholarships for the 2019-2020 academic year will be notified by e-mail or mail by April 12th. Scholarship recipients are required to write a letter of appreciation to the scholarship donors and attend a formal award ceremony in September before payment is made for tuition.
