School of Human Ecology Administered Scholarships

The School of Human Ecology administers many scholarships that are granted on a merit/need basis. The application process for the following academic year begins in spring semester. The application process involves filling out just one application which provides eligibility for all School of Human Ecology scholarships.

The 2014-2015 School of Human Ecology scholarship application is now closed. We thank you for your application.  We hope to notify students of awards for 2014-2015 in  June, 2014.

Awards are typically granted to students enrolled as majors in one of the School’s departments (Human Development and Family Sciences, Nutritional Sciences, or Textiles and Apparel). Many, but not all, scholarships are granted to students in their junior year.

Award notifications are sent out prior to the beginning of fall semester of each year.
