Student recruitment and retention are key factors when awarding scholarships. Scholarship funds are limited and are used to support the institution's enrollment goals of attracting high achieving students, students who contribute to the diversity of the student population, and removing financial barriers to support access for qualified students. Current recipients eligible for renewal scholarships are awarded on a first-come, first-serve basis. New potential recipients are awarded based the institution's enrollment goals. In addition, a portion of funds are reserved each year for recent high school graduates and awarded on an equitable distribution among all high schools.
