Do I have to fill out an application for every scholarship?
No - unless you are a Health Science major. Although more than 50 scholarships are available, a student only needs to fill out one Foundation Scholarship Application during the month of March.
HEALTH SCIENCE MAJORS: A separate scholarship application for Health Science majors is available from May 16 - June 15 that will be used to award Health Science Scholarships.
How soon will I find out if I received a scholarship?
There is not a specified date for notification of acceptance. As soon as each committee makes their decisions, all students will be notified via mail. Typically this occurs within six to eight weeks of the scholarship closing date.
How are scholarships chosen?
A computerized matching process ensures that each applicant is reviewed for scholarships for which they qualify. A student may qualify for numerous scholarships. Various committees made up of faculty and staff review each application and choose recipients. A student can only receive one foundation scholarship per semester, but if more than one is awarded, the student will receive the award with the highest dollar amount.
