Transfer scholarships/awards for domestic, out-of-state students

Awards for Spring/Fall 2020

Please review the scholarships/awards below to help determine your eligibility for individual awards.

Some scholarships/awards may require additional supplemental information. Additionally, please make sure you're aware of the general transfer scholarship eligibility requirements that apply to all awards.

Please note that meeting the eligibility requirements for a scholarship does not guarantee an award, as all award amounts and criteria are pending availability of funds and are subject to change.
