How Do I Get Help?
If you have any questions, please contact:
Joy Luna
Coordinator of Donor Stewardship



I was awarded a scholarship last year. Do I need to apply again this year?
Yes. We will not be able to determine whether you are still eligible this year if you do not submit an application.

Will you still consider me for a scholarship if I start but do not finish my application?
No. Only completed applications will be considered.

Can I start my application, save it, and finish it later?
Yes, but students often forget to finish it. We recommend completing the application in one sitting so that you do not forget to finish it.
