Scholarships and fellowships

Several scholarships and full fellowships are open to current graduate and undergraduate students. Each award has distinct criteria to determine recipients, such as the type of degree pursued, subjects studied, grade point average (GPA), credits completed, and career goals. Applicants are ranked based on the criteria for each scholarship. Merit-based scholarships are based on the highest GPA and best essay.

Fellowships offer incredible opportunities to expand horizons, broaden knowledge and increase value as a future employee or degree candidate.
