Scholarships

Scholarship awards cover a portion of a student's expenses. Some scholarships are based on a student's financial need; others are awarded on the basis of academic excellence or skills. There are two types of scholarships: those administered solely by the college, including the selection of recipients by means of a committee comprised of faculty and staff members; and those administered by the college at the request of donors who select the recipients themselves.
