Scholarships are monetary gifts from community, private, and campus sources and are usually based on academic merit or some other criteria. Some scholarships also require verification of financial need. Therefore, all scholarship applicants are strongly encouraged to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Scholarships for students at the University are supported by private donors, local businesses, and the annual fundraising event, Corks & Forks. No repayment of scholarships is required.
