One week prior to convocation, you will receive a notification, via email, that you have been awarded a scholarship. Scholarships are announced and awarded at the May or June Honors Convocation.

If I am a scholarship recipient, do I receive money on the evening of Honors Convocation?

At the Honors Convocation, recipients will receive an award packet with instructions on how to claim their scholarship awards. Recipients are required to write and send a thank you note to the donor and submit a proof of enrollment as a full time student before a scholarship award is paid. Once a copy of the thank you note that was sent and the proof of enrollment are uploaded to the recipient’s scholarship account, a check is sent directly to the recipient’s college. A small number of scholarship organizations present a check directly to their recipients at Honors Convocation. These will be included in the award packet.
