UNIVERSITY SCHOLARSHIPS

University Scholarships are scholarships awarded by the college you apply to. These are determined by academics, financial need, military status, minority, first-generation students, etc. This is why it is super important to fill out your FASFA before the priority deadline. Your FAFSA will help colleges determine which university scholarships you are eligible for.  

For more information on University Scholarships contact the Financial Aid office at the college you are interested in applying to.
