All academic scholarships for incoming students are awarded by the Office of Admissions. Scholarships are highly competitive and granted to admitted students on a rolling basis. The majority of scholarships are awarded between December and February of each admission cycle or until the scholarship funds are exhausted. Applicants wishing to be seriously considered should complete their admission files no later than the first week of January. Notification of an institutional scholarship award usually takes place three to four weeks after admission.

While the majority of our scholarships are merit-based, some awards take other factors into account as well.

All inquiries regarding availability of scholarships for incoming students should be directed to the Office of Admissions.
