If so noted, you are required to attend our annual scholarship reception in November. It’s a time to meet donors and personally thank them for your award(s). Unfortunately, due to limited space, not all students will be invited. We also cannot accommodate or allow guests of scholarship recipients. Formal invitations are usually mailed in early fall.

Assistant Director of Financial Aid

Although your application will be considered, preference is given to students who are not getting financial aid.

If you receive a scholarship before you are notified that you qualify for financial aid, your scholarship may be adjusted.  We appreciate students who notify us when this happens.

You will receive the fall portion of your scholarship but the spring portion will be allotted to someone else in need.

Some scholarships do require or give preference to students who volunteer on a consistent basis and/or show leadership skills in community service.

There are many ways to volunteer. The following are suggestions:

Off Campus:

Yes – please attach a letter of recommendation from your volunteer supervisor onto your AwardSpring application. We would like to know approximately how many hours you have volunteered.
