SGA Scholarship

The SGA Scholarship is a fund that is renewed each semester by the authority of the SGA Senate. Awarded conjointly by the SGA Scholarship Committee and the SGA Executive Board, this scholarship looks for student candidates who strive to have a positive influence on the world around them. Whether it be taking a leadership role on their dorm floor or working to further social justice initiatives in the community, candidates must demonstrate a deep interest in service and community impact. Candidates with a wide variety of stories and all levels of financial need will be considered. 

To kick off the brand new SGA Scholarship program, we are able to award up to 10 students with $1,000 each towards their Spring 2016 tuition.

How to Apply

Scholarship applications will be available for a limited period of time each semester. All applications may be filled out and turned in online.
