Through the generosity of loyal alumni, faculty, and friends, the School of Human Ecology is proud to offer over 20 scholarships to deserving students each year. Scholarships are awarded based on one or more of the following criteria: academic classification, academic performance, financial need, involvement in Human Ecology student organizations and activities, professional involvement, and extra-curricular activities.
Scholarship applications are accepted from September until February 1 each year. Scholarship committees meet in March of each year. Currently enrolled students are notified at the annual spring Awards Day. Incoming freshman recipients are notified in April and receive personal invitations to attend Awards Day.
Incoming freshmen who miss the February application deadline are encouraged to contact the Human Ecology office even after the deadline has passed, as occasionally there have been additional Freshman scholarships available to award.
