Scholarships are the best form of financial aid to receive. Scholarships do not require repayment and do not have a work requirement. Financial need is the primary criteria for scholarships for current students.
Scholarships for current students
Students who need financial assistance may apply for a need-based scholarship through Atlas throughout the year.
The amounts of the awards vary from $500 to $2,000 (or more, in rare cases), depending on the level of need and the availability of funds.
Please complete all elements of the e-form. Including a budget is helpful as well. Decisions are generally made within two weeks of when the application is submitted, and the scholarships are posted directly to students’ bursar accounts.Apply for need-based scholarships
