Campus-based scholarships are available to qualified students. These scholarships are highly-competitive and can pay benefits ranging in length from 2-4 years in return for a period of service following graduation. Scholarships pay for full tuition and mandatory fees, for both resident and non-resident students. Scholarship awardees also receive a book allowance and a tax-free monthly stipend to defray the cost of living.
