How Do I Apply for D&E Scholarships?

Your admission application to the College will qualify you for merit-based institutional scholarships. There is no separate scholarship application for institutional financial aid. If you are interested in scholarship opportunities through our Athletic Department or Division of Creative Arts, simply indicate so on your admission application and your counselor will be able to connect you with the appropriate coach or program chairperson for a scholarship audition.
