The College of Natural Sciences and the University award a multitude of scholarships to CNS students each year. The College looks at a variety of factors when making scholarship decisions. Scholarship decisions are based on items such as but not limited to merit, leadership and/or need. Since scholarship funding comes from various sources, criteria used to make scholarship selections can vary too.

By accurately filling out the appropriate forms based on your enrollment or application status, you will be considered for a variety of college- and university-administered scholarships.

Students interested in learning about the various opportunities for research funding in the College should visit the Research Funding page. Prospective donors interested in supporting our students should visit the College Giving site.

UPDATE 8/28/20:  CNS Common Scholarship Application notifications and updates have all been sent except for those applicants being considered for a scholarship through the Department of Physics.  Physics is still in the process of finalizing those awards.  Applicants will be updated as soon as that information becomes available.

The deadline for the College of Natural Sciences Common Scholarship Application for currently enrolled CNS students has passed.  We are no longer accepting applications.  The CNS Common Scholarship Application will be used to determine college-wide and Health Professions scholarships, Out-of-State Tuition Waivers, and departmental awards for Biological Sciences, Chemistry, Physics, and the School of Human Ecology for the 2020-2021 academic year.  

Current CNS students who submitted an application by the March 15th deadline can expect to hear about their scholarship status over the summer via e-mail.  Please be sure to keep your e-mail address up-to-date.
