Scholarship information from outside sources received by the Office of Student Aid is compiled in a binder in C1802. You may peruse this binder any time the office is open. There is also a Scholarship Interest Data form in acceptance packets. Completion of this form allows your information to be entered into the Office of Student Aid database so you can be notified if scholarships with particular requirements arrive that match your information.
