Scholarships & Aid
There are many ways to finance your education at CFANS, including scholarships, grants, loans and work-study programs.
Through generous donations from alumni, friends and corporate sponsors, the college awards approximately $1.5 million in scholarships annually to incoming and current undergraduate students. Separate funding opportunities (related to achievement, diversity, study abroad, research, professional development, internship or other factors) are available for new freshmen, transfer students and current students. Some department scholarships also are available.
To be eligible for CFANS or departmental scholarships, you must be a full-time student (taking at least 13 credits per semester), show evidence of making good progress on a four-year plan to complete an approved CFANS major and remain in good academic standing. Some financial aid awards have additional eligibility criteria.
Committees made up of faculty and staff members select student recipients based on criteria outlined for each scholarship, such as academic achievement, professional promise, leadership, involvement, contribution to diversity, work experience and financial need.
