The Chancellor’s Scholars Program is an organization intended to provide scholars with unique and specialized opportunities that will help them achieve their academic, leadership and personal goals. Recipients of the Chancellor’s Scholarship must maintain a 3.0 GPA, complete 20 hours of community service per academic year and actively participate in all aspects of the CSP. We push our scholars to be well-rounded, Renaissance men and women who can tackle any challenge set before them with grace. Our students actively pursue study abroad opportunities, research, campus leadership roles, intern and externships and cultural enrichment events.

The Chancellor’s Scholarship covers the cost of tuition, room and board and all mandatory fees. While this is indeed an amazing scholarship, the program itself has a rather limited budget. Donated funds will be used to cover the costs of books and supplies for scholars in need, application fees for graduate schools, guest speakers, field trips, recruitment endeavors and more. Your donation will help to further these bright stars on campus and aid in the development of their leadership skills, integrity and service to the community.
