Guidelines and application information can be found on the Non-Traditional Scholarships webpage. With the exception being the Peedee Brown Award, all scholarships require financial need (filling out a FAFSA with Financial Aid) as a primary criterion. Scholarships that require financial need as a primary criterion will need a FAFSA packet filled out with the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships as part of the application process. The amount and number of awards may vary each year. A selection committee will determine who will be awarded and the amount to be awarded to each selected applicant.
