Undergraduate Scholarships & Grants
Each year, the College of Liberal Arts awards more than $3.5 million in collegiate scholarships and grants to CLA undergraduates. Many academic departments within CLA also award scholarships.
If a student experiences an unexpected emergency situation that creates a financial hardship, limited CLA funds are available as one-time emergency grants. CLA students can apply for this support directly via One Stop. See detailed information about the process and eligibility requirements on One Stop's student emergency funds webpage.
