College of Liberal Arts students have multiple opportunities to secure scholarships to ease the path to graduation. Some scholarships are based on merit, some on financial need, and some depend on the student’s course of study.
By submitting just one application, all students -- incoming, continuing, and transfer students -- can apply for multiple scholarships for 2018–2019. This university-wide undergraduate and graduate 2018–2019 Scholarship Application is open until January 8, 2018. For more information regarding the Financial Aid Scholarship process, please call Raider Connect at 775-4000.
The CoLA Dean's Office is accepting applications for two additional scholarships.

For more information regarding these scholarships, please call (937) 775-2233 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
In addition, all majors in the college have scholarships for continuing majors. See the webpages for each major for more information.
