Unlike student loans, scholarships do not need to be repaid and are awarded based on a variety of criteria including, but not limited to, financial need, academic excellence, mission relevance, and community involvement and service.

New Student Scholarships

Admitted students are automatically considered for the following scholarships at time of acceptance. Applicants are encouraged to apply for admission as early as possible.
