External Scholarships

The Office of Financial Aid receives notification of external scholarships opportunities from private organizations. Students will be notified of these opportunities through their campus email, as well as advertisement within the Pulse, or viewed here.

Students should take all precautions when applying for external scholarships. Scammers take advantage of that, saying they’ll help you get financial aid or scholarships but really they are trying take your money or steal your personal information. Lear more on how to avoid scholarship and financial aid scams on the Federal Trade Commission’s website.
