The university works with donors and sponsors to offer a variety of scholarships to current students. Applications for scholarships typically go live during the spring semester for the following academic year. Current students who have demonstrated their academic abilities at the University are good candidates for scholarships. Regardless, all students are automatically reviewed for scholarship eligibility if they have maintained a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher. Typically, the only other qualification is to have a current FAFSA on file by our recommended filing date of March 1 each year. However, certain scholarships for returning students may also require an additional application. This resource is not specifically for LGBTQ+ students, however, using the keyword "Inclusion" in the search tool will show the scholarships aimed at LGBTQ+ students.

Applications are typically open from Sept.-Dec. depending on the scholarship type.
