College Scholarships and Awards

Students seeking scholarship support will complete an electronic application to help us review their qualifications/match for scholarships.  All CMNS College scholarships will take into account BOTH academic merit and financial need.  Students applying for college scholarships must have a current Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) on file with the University Office of Student Financial Aid (OFSA) in order to determine financial need. Students who do not have a current FAFSA on file will not be further considered for CMNS scholarships.  Scholarships are only awarded to students whose primary major is in CMNS.  CMNS Scholarships are awarded to returning students already enrolled in courses in May each year.  They are not awarded to new freshmen or to new transfer students. 

The J. R. Dorfman Prize has a separate application process and deadline, and does not include a criterion of financial needPlease see the Dorfman Prize information page.

Students should also visit department scholarship websites to access more scholarships pertaining to their field of study.

The 2016-17 scholarship application process is closed.  Please return to this page during the middle of the Spring 2017 semester for information about the 2017-18 application cycle.
