Scholarships

Creating an endowed scholarship allows our institution to attract the finest students, many of whom might not otherwise be able to afford to nurture their talents without the benefit of financial assistance. Scholarships are awarded on the basis of academic merit, but also may consider financial need and other factors, if the donor chooses. For example, one may wish to establish a scholarship specifically for students in a particular field of study. Scholarships may be structured as a one-time award or designed to assist students over the entire course of a multi-year degree plan, provided the students meet certain eligibility and academic standards. Scholarships may be named for the donor or to honor any individual the donor chooses.
