Scholarships and Awards

Students may be eligible for several different types of scholarships: College Scholarships, Major or Program Scholarships, University Scholarships, Specific Need-Based Scholarships, and Student Experience Scholarships. Students are often eligible to stack their awards. Any student who is a declared major in the College of Arts and Sciences and full-time (minimum 12 credit hours) may be qualified. We encourage you to explore and apply for all scholarships where you meet the criteria.

For any questions, please contact the Arts and Sciences Scholarship Committee at
