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.

  • Scholarships are only awarded to students whose primary major is in CMNS.
  • 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 FAFSA on file for the coming academic year will not be further considered for CMNS scholarships. 
  • 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. 
  • Priority will be given to students who are pursuing their first undergraduate degree.

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 scholarship application process is now closed for scholarships to be awarded for the 2017-18 academic year.  The application for the 2018-19 academic year will be made available in the spring of 2018.
