Our department offers a number of scholarships and awards to our students each year, due to the generosity of our alumni and donors. These awards help our students to fund their academic pursuits, take advantage of a field experience or study abroad, and participate in research. Our faculty selects the winners of scholarships and awards based on academic performance and specific criteria for each award.
