Scholarships by College:

Endowed Scholarship Fund
  • Receives an annual budget based on a consistent formula.
  • In most cases, if the fund is underwater during the budget period, no budget will be issued for that year.  Go to Learn About Budgets for more information on underwater funds.
  • If any part of the budget is remaining at fiscal year-end, and if the fund agreement allows, it may be possible to carry forward the balance into the next fiscal year by completing a Budget Carry-Forward Request
Non-Endowed Scholarship Fund
  • Receives an annual budget based on the current balance in the fund.  If no balance exists, then there will be no amount to award.
  • Does not require a Budget Carry-Forward Request as the current balance in the fund is available at any point in time, as long as there are no encumbrances.
Awarding Process
