Departmental Scholarships

There are several academic departments which have endowed scholarship funds to be awarded each year in April at Honors Convocation to be used for the following academic year. There is typically no scholarship application process since the recipients are usually selected by the department faculty. These scholarships vary in amount and are typically one-year awards.
