The deadline for fall term applicants is July 15, and the deadline for spring term applicants is November 15. All application materials must be postmarked or received by these dates. Applications received after the deadlines or incomplete packets will not be considered for the current semester.

Scholarship Amount and Selection

The scholarship amount is $2,500 per academic year ($1,250 per semester). The Lifelong Learners Scholarship Fund will issue awards on the basis of academic, professional and personal achievement and application content, to the extent funds are available.

The student will be awarded the top scholarship for which he/she is eligible; these four awards are not eligible to be awarded simultaneously to the same recipient.

A selection committee (a panel of staff and faculty representing Graduate and Continuing Education) will review all applications and make a decision by July 25 for fall applicants and November 25 for spring applicants. Applicants will be notified by mail regarding the status of their application. The scholarship will be awarded through the office of Graduate and Continuing Education. Applications received after the deadlines or incomplete application submissions will not be considered for the current semester.
