Scholarships are an important source of funding for our students. The university annually awards over 1,000 scholarships, providing support for students based on both academic and merit achievements. This funding is made possible through the generous support of our donors. If you are interested in either contributing to an existing or creating a new scholarship, please take some time to review the following options:
There are several scholarship programs to which patrons may donate money. If you have any questions about contributing to an existing scholarship program, contact the coordinator for university scholarships.
Donors have many reasons for why they wish to create new scholarships. Quite often they want to provide funding for students who embody certain ideals. These ideals may resemble their own development as a person or an individual who was a mentor. There are many criteria that new scholarships can be based upon.
To create a scholarship with a particular major or field of interest, contact the appropriate Director of Development to assist you in establishing the scholarship (ex. scholarship for finance majors are created though the College of Business Administration Development Office). You may also contact the Coordinator of University Scholarships if your scholarship will be open to all majors and you would like the Center for Scholarship Information to assist in the administration of your scholarship.
