Academic Year 2021-2022 Scholarships

The application is open now and will close February 15, 2021 for the College of Public Health and Human Sciences.  Start your application now (or during the winter break), and don’t wait until the last minute! All submitted CPHHS applications will be carefully reviewed by a committee of CPHHS faculty members across the college, and once your application is submitted, you won’t be able to edit it. Additionally, if you are an AY20-21 CPHHS scholarship recipient, your scholarship award(s) is not renewable, so we encourage everyone to apply for the AY21-22 scholarships. If you have any questions regarding the CPHHS undergraduate scholarships, please feel free to email our scholarship coordinator, Niddy Lindsley.
