Application Tips

  • Each scholarship has a specific deadline. Be sure to check the deadline before applying.
  • Some scholarships may require additional materials, like a letter of recommendation or a résumé. Your application is not complete until all required materials for that scholarship have been submitted.

Notification of Awards

Who gets notified?

Only scholarship recipients will receive official notification from committees. You can review your application status at any time through BOSS.

When do committees notify recipients?

Most scholarship committees begin notifying award recipients around April 1, and the notification process is generally completed by July 1. For more specific award information, please consult with the awarding office.

Scholarships are competitive

Scholarship funds are extremely limited and are awarded on a competitive basis. Every scholarship committee reviews applications each year from numerous qualified applicants. Unfortunately, many exemplary students do not receive awards.
