Liberal Studies Scholarships

Each spring the department may recommend an outstanding student who has completed the junior year for one or more University scholarships which are awarded to students in their senior year.  In addition, the department’s faculty and alumni contribute funds which support scholarships for a small number of seniors in the B.A. Humanities programs.

Faculty members of the department nominate students for these scholarships. No application is required for initial consideration, but students recommended for a University scholarship usually must submit an application specifically for that scholarship, along with letters of recommendation.

Graduating students with an outstanding academic record and with an outstanding record of service to the community are encouraged to consult the Scholarships Office for information about national scholarships for graduate studies.
