General Scholarship Information

All scholarships are split evenly between the first (fall) and second (spring)semesters. For example, if a recipient is awarded a $1000 scholarship, the first $500 will be applied to the fall semester’s charges and the remaining $500 will be applied to the second semester’s charges. Scholarship recipients who do not re-enroll for the second semester will forfeit any remaining balance of unused scholarship funds.

Scholarship funds are non-transferable.

Funds designated for tuition may only be used for tuition charges.

Scholarship application deadlines may be extended due to an applicant’s extenuating circumstances. However, the probability of such an extension is minimal due to the competitive nature of the scholarship selection process.
