Over 80% of all freshman entering CFAES receive a college scholarship. To maximize your opportunity to earn scholarships, Freshmen should complete the University Admissions Application by November 1st, our College Scholarship Application (to be eligible for college and departmental dollars), and the FAFSA (to qualify for scholarships that require documented financial aid) by February 15th. Please note: Priority consideration is given to students who submit the scholarship application by February 15th. Applications submitted after this date are considered if funding is available. We also encourage looking to outside sources for scholarships and grants, whether they are large organizations or local companies.
