Scholarships

Even if you are using the GI Bill, you might qualify for more financial aid. In addition to those available to all students, many scholarships and grants are available to current and former military personnel and family members.

To qualify for scholarships and grants, you should first complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). You can do that here. To find scholarships, check the University Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid database and visit their office.
