Special scholarship money is set aside for students who meet specific criteria designated by the donors. Academic achievement, student involvement, and financial need are also considered, with professors and department heads nominating individuals for each award. The nominees are later reviewed by a Financial Aid committee.
Awards chapel, held at the end of each spring semester, serves as a special time to highlight hardworking students, as well as those who give so generously to support the school.
