2014-2015 Scholarship Guide and Application
The AUM School of Sciences strives to ensure that students have every opportunity to successfully complete their educational goals. Part of that effort is our commitment to helping students to pay for costs associated with their education.
Scholarships offered by the School of Sciences are awarded independently of any merit scholarships affiliated with the financial aid department. Many can be earned in addition to merit scholarships, but some may only be awarded in the absence of another type of award.
Each scholarship offered by the AUM School of Sciences has its own set of application criteria and procedures, and you must apply for each scholarship separately. All application packages must be accompanied by the scholarship application form and unofficial transcripts. Please be aware that while we strive to ensure that these scholarships will be available each year, all scholarships, award amounts and application guidelines are subject to change from one year to the next.
All scholarship applications are judged by our selection committee, and recipients will be selected based upon pre-established criteria, to include, GPA, extracurricular activities, volunteer activities, employment, personality and potential.
