- Most recipients do have financial need, but we also award to some students who do not have financial need or do not apply for aid.
- Automatically renewed for second, third and fourth years as long as you maintain satisfactory academic progress and satisfy requirements of the program.
Academic scholarships recognize outstanding academic achievements. Students who have extraordinary academic records and the promise to contribute greatly to the University's rich learning environment are eligible.
Most funding is awarded to students who have demonstrated institutional financial need as determined by our Office of Financial Aid. A limited number of merit scholarships are awarded to students who don't have financial need or don't apply for financial aid. Selected first-year students receive merit scholarships as part of their admissions offer. Please note that our merit scholarships are only awarded at the time of admission. These scholarships are renewable annually as long as the student remains eligible. Financial aid packages include only one type of academic scholarship; we do not award multiple academic scholarships to individual students.
