Scholarship Information for Faculty and Staff
The scholarship award process:
- Scholarship and Dept. Fund Report: University Advancement will send each department chair a report which lists the available amounts and criteria for their department's scholarships. This usually occurs by January 31. Shortly after, the application process is opened to current students with a deadline in early March.
- Reviewing Applications: The Foundation will notify the department chairs when reviewing can begin, and department scholarship committees will review the applications online. Once each committee has discussed the applicants and made their choices, the department scholarship chairs will submit the recommendations through the online scholarship system. Each department has a unique system of reviewing - please contact your department's scholarship chair with any department-specific review questions.
- Awarding Scholarships: Once the recommendations are received and verified in the system, the Foundation will notify the students who have been awarded scholarships via email. The goal is to have all award emails sent by the end of April.
Logging into the system:
The Foundation will provide you with unique link the first time you access the system, and you will be required to create a password.
