Make A Difference: Scholarships
In addition to attracting students from economically and ethnically diverse backgrounds, scholarship support recognizes excellence and helps students in times of need.
Privately funded by alumni, family and friends, there are several awards that directly touch the lives of students. Because these scholarship and grant programs are privately funded, only a fraction of a deserving student population benefit from this assistance. You can help ease the financial burden and increase a student’s ability to complete his or her academic requirements by contributing to an expanded array of scholarships. In addition to those below, it is possible to name and fund your own scholarship or award.
