The College of Natural Sciences and the University award a multitude of scholarships to CNS students each year. Scholarship decisions are based on a variety of factors such as but not limited to merit, leadership and/or need. Because scholarship funding comes from various sources, criteria used to make scholarship selections can vary.   However, there is one common online application for these scholarships. By submitting the CNS Common Scholarship Application, you will be considered for all awards for which you are eligible.  Please visit the CNS Scholarships home page for additional information, including the Common Scholarship Application.
