The What

Scholarships are financial support awarded to students for educational purposes. The funds are used to defray the costs of tuition, books, room, board and other expenses directly tied to a student’s educational cost through the university. Scholarships are typically awarded using a variety of factors, including - but not limited to, academic achievement, departmental and community involvement, employment experience, areas of study, and financial need.
