Scholarship Opportunities

Students wishing to be considered for Scholarships should let their adviser know immediately. College and Department Scholarships and awards have varying deadlines for application, again usually early to mid-Spring. Departmental scholarships and awards are given on a merit basis by the votes of various committees, and are awarded at the Curtain Call Awards Banquet.
