College of Life Science Scholarships

  • ALL applicants MUST have applied for a university scholarship.
  • All Department Scholarship Applications are part of the College Scholarship Application.
  • It is offered for the Fall and Winter semesters only.

The primary goal of the College Scholarship Committee is to award a scholarship to as many students as possible. Therefore, applicants receiving a university scholarship will be considered for, but not guaranteed for college scholarship.

Tips for excellent applications:

  • Don't miss the deadline. (February 1 at 11:59 PM)
  • Make sure that the application is COMPLETE (have your recommendation letters IN) before you submit it, and that you have hit the "Submit" button when you are done.
  • There is no character limit or requirement for the essays. With that in mind, be mindful about how you respond.
  • Although only 2 letters of recommendation are required, request 3 so that if someone misses the deadline your application still has 2 letters.
  • Don't think reviewers don't read essays and letters of recommendation. They do, and weigh them heavily. Have somebody else proofread your essays.
