Scholarship Opportunities

The College’s scholarship and grant program recognize academic achievements and special talents of students. Scholarship candidates are selected from the pool of admitted applicants. Your admissions application serves as your scholarship application.  Eligibility in no way guarantees awarding but an admission deposit is required to reserve the scholarship offer. These awards are based upon both academic-merit and demonstrated financial need.  Both factors are essential in the awarding of institutional aid.
