Scholars Programs

The University offers several scholarships that are awarded through competitive admission into scholars programs.

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.

These programs provide students with financial assistance and opportunities to explore their passions in community service, laboratory research and beyond.

The application opens on Sept. 1. Please note: students must have a completed admission application to complete the scholars application. The application deadline is Feb. 1 and program interviews for finalists will be held in March.
