Scholarships & Grants

Undergraduate Students

Scholarships and grants are a form of financial aid awarded to students for the purpose of paying all or part of their college expenses. They can be awarded on the basis of academic merit, financial need, or a combination of both. Unlike loans, scholarships and grants do not have to be repaid by the student.

Graduate Students

Graduate students interested in scholarships and grants may contact their program of interest or department. View more information on the Graduate Education Office website. In addition, the Fellowships & Scholarships Office provides support to graduate students interesting in pursing certain external scholarships, like Fullbright and UK Awards.
