Outside Scholarship Opportunities

Girl in the city

We realize that every extra dollar helps in paying for college. Student Financial Services is constantly reviewing information from private organizations to uncover scholarship opportunities that students might not otherwise apply for. We encourage you to stop by our office for more information.

Students who are awarded "outside" scholarships that may be applied to their total costs will have the funds added to their financial aid packages; this may allow us to reduce their loans or adjust their packages.
