The scholarship is supported by the cable contract with Residential Life. Award funds are for the following semester. If you are applying in fall, the funds would be applied for the spring semester housing balance. If the application is submitted and accepted in spring, the funds would be for the subsequent fall. Several scholarships may be awarded each semester. Funds will vary based on eligibility and will range from full semester housing costs to partial semester housing costs, not to exceed the cost of a double room.
