A: Once all recipients have been chosen, we will send an email to our applicants notifying them that scholarship and fellowship decisions have been made.
A: The main reason a student may not be awarded a scholarship is limited funds. At this time, there are not enough scholarship funds to make awards to each student who applies. Other common reasons are low GPA or ineligibility based on specific scholarship requirements.
A: All scholarships and fellowships will be automatically applied to any tuition and fees and/or remaining balance on your financial aid account. If there are any funds left over after this balance is paid, recipients will receive this money in one of two ways. Recipients with direct deposit from the university will see extra funds credited to their corresponding bank account. Students without direct deposit will receive a check from Accounts Recievable for the amount of the remaining funds. Please make sure your address and contact information are accurate and up-to-date. Inaccurate contact information may result in a delay in the disbursement of these funds.
