Restricted Grants and Scholarships

These scholarships and grants are awarded on the basis of academic achievement and/or financial need. There are no special financial aid forms for Restricted and Endowed Scholarships. Recipients are determined by the Office of Student Financial Services, with input from the deans or department chairs based on criteria established by the donors. These awards are generally made to continuing students in the spring semester for one year only, and are based on the availability of funds in any given year.
