Our Opportunities

Once you submit your General Application, you will be automatically matched to “New Student Scholarships” if you qualify. You will also be matched to other Recommended Opportunities. These would include Departmental, Need Based and Alumni Scholarship opportunities you may also be eligible to manually apply for under the “Recommended Opportunities” once you complete the General Application. These scholarships could be stacked on top of any “New Student” Scholarship you may have already been awarded.

2021-2022 Financial Aid Priority Deadline is January 15, 2021

Browsing “All” Scholarships: To view a list of all scholarship opportunities, you may click “All” under “Opportunities” above. This list shows all scholarships, not scholarships for which you are being considered. Auto-matched scholarships are only those “New Student Scholarships”. All other potential scholarships are listed under the Recommended Opportunities. The “Deadline” column indicates the deadline to complete the application to receive consideration. This is not the deadline to accept the award.
