COLSA Scholarships

UNDERGRADUATE AND GRADUATE SCHOLARSHIPS

Listed below are several scholarships available to both undergraduate and graduate students in the College of Life Sciences and Agriculture and the Thompson School of Applied Science. Eligibility requirements are given for each scholarship. The amount of awards varies from year to year. Please read the scholarship descriptions carefully and apply only for scholarships for which you are eligible. For example, if you are an out-of-state student do not apply for scholarships that are only eligible to in-state students. Do not apply for all scholarships – be selective.

DEADLINE FOR COMPLETED APPLICATIONS IS THURSDAY, MARCH 9th.

LATE APPLICATIONS WILL NOT BE REVIEWED – NO EXCEPTIONS!
