A&S Scholarship Program

Thanks to the generosity of many donors, the College of Arts and Sciences offers a variety of undergraduate scholarships across many disciplines in Arts & Sciences. Due to the competitive nature of these scholarships, we only accept applications from main campus students who will have achieved a junior level status (at least 60 credit hours) by the start of the following fall semester.
