The College of Arts & Sciences Scholarship Committee is made up of 14 faculty members within the College. Those 14 members represent their respective departments, giving the committee well-rounded representation of its students. Scholarship committee members are responsible for annually reviewing submitted scholarship applications from incoming freshman, transfer students, and continuing students who will all be considered for private scholarships within the dean's office. Committee members take this task very seriously and diligently spend their time reviewing each application assigned to them. The work they do is very important so that the college can proudly award approximately $175,000 of private scholarships annually to its students. For questions regarding the A&S Scholarship Committee, please email Nikki Robinson, committee chair, at
