General Scholarship Information
Each scholarship requires students to be enrolled in a minimum amount of credit hours each semester. For more information, please review the scholarship list provided below in Step 1. This list will be updated prior to each fall and spring scholarship application cycle.
Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP): Students are reviewed for Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) at the end of each term. Students who fall into SAP warning or suspension receive an email informing them of their SAP status. Students in SAP suspension may submit a SAP appeal to the University. Unless the appeal is submitted and approved, the student will not be eligible to receive a BCH scholarship; the appeal process should take place prior to applying for any scholarship awards. The SAP Appeal Forms and Instructions can be found on the link provided below. For questions regarding Financial Aid, please contact (904) 620-5555.

Additional Scholarship Thank You Letter Tips:
Make an impact: Your thank you letter is very important to the donor! It provides you with an opportunity to share your own personal story as well as a way to express your gratitude for the award.
Make it your own: Use the sample thank you letter template as a guide, but please share your own story and do not copy the wording in the example. The letter does not have to be long, but it should be heartfelt.
Write professionally: You want to make a good impression! Have a friend or family member read your letter for revisions and feedback before submitting it to the Dean’s Office. Letters that contain many writing and grammatical errors will be returned to the student for correction. This could delay getting your letter to the donor.
