The donor or a scholarship review team determines the recipient for those scholarships awarded by the College.

The Levine Scholarship application is also available for download. This scholarship requires a FAFSA and a one page essay. These will be accepted and awarded to students meeting criteria set forth by donors.
The scholarship program consists of two kinds of awards: merit-based scholarships and need-based scholarships. Scholarships are also awarded on a competitive basis applying the following criteria: academic excellence, achievement, leadership qualities, need or other criteria as stipulated by the donor.
Awards are usually restricted to tuition assistance and require the recipient to maintain a minimum GPA to continue the scholarship. Students must reapply each year.
Awarded funds that are not used during the academic year are returned to the scholarship and do not carry over from year to year. Students must re-submit a scholarship application every year.
