May 15 is our biggest deadline of the year! This is the last day to apply for competitive and basic scholarships for the 2017 fall semester. If you or someone you know is planning to attend school this fall, you do not want to miss this deadline.

Here’s what’s up for grabs:

  • Competitive scholarships ranging from $5,000 to $9,000
  • $800 basic scholarships for part-time students
  • $1,200 basic scholarships for full-time students

What’s the difference between the scholarships? Competitive scholarships are awarded through a competitive review process, while basic scholarships are awarded to all students who meet the eligibility guidelines and submit a completed application by the appropriate deadline. (Also, our basic scholarships are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis, so be sure to get your application in early!)
