Enhance Your Experience with Scholars Programs

The University offers several scholarships that are awarded through competitive admission into scholars programs, which are available to first-time, full-time students.

 As scholars, students incorporate an area of interest into their academic experience and receive additional scholarship support — ranging from $2,000 up to full tuition.

The deadline for scholars applications is Jan. 15, 2024.
