NOTE:  Scholarship awards may be reduced in the event that external scholarship funding or financial aid creates an over award.  In such case, a student should contact the Office of Financial Aid. 

Each year, scholarships are awarded to incoming students as the Honors Program budget permits.  Once a student is awarded, he or she will continue to be funded at that level through to completion of the Honors Program.  Budgetary restrictions do not allow the upgrading of scholarships.
