Applicants for admission will be considered for all admission awards with the completion of one Award ApplicationForm. You may address specific award criteria in the last section of the application where you outline your academic, professional, and personal interests and achievements.

Financial Need Assessment

Many of the awards offered by the university require demonstration of financial need.  In order for applicants to be considered for needs-based awards, financial need must be demonstrated by completing the budget section of the award application form.  If an applicant chooses not to complete the financial budget (or fails to demonstrate need), s/he will only be considered for non-needs based awards.
