Please see below for the list of scholarships offered by Student Government:

Competitive Scholarships

 

Competitive Scholarships are scholarships that are allocated and distributed by Student Government. The applications are reviewed by the SG Scholarship Committee, and the committee will select the award recipient(s) for each award.

Decentralized Scholarships 

 

Decentralized Scholarships are scholarships that are allocated by Student Government for other departments to distribute. The applications are available within the corresponding departments from which the scholarship is distributed, as well as at the Student Government Rotunda, Building 58E, Room 3300. The departments themselves determine the selection process and decide on the award recipient(s) for each award. Any questions about these scholarships should be directed to the corresponding department directly.
