Financial Grants

We have funds designated for highly qualified undergraduate students with limited financial resources.

After you have been admitted and have paid your seat reservation deposit, you may apply for a financial grant if you are a first-time student and meet the following requirements:

  • have received an official letter of admission to the university
  • have limited financial resources

If you are eligible for a grant, the amount of the award will depend upon your financial need and your academic qualifications. If you live on campus in a shared or double room, you may be eligible for partial assistance toward your residential hall fees.

Grants are awarded regardless of your race, color, gender, religion or national origin. Please contact the scholarship supervisor after you have received your letter of admission. You will find the contact information at the bottom of this page.
