Henderson Scholarship

Terms and Conditions

The Henderson Scholarship was established to recognize first-time first-year students who will enhance the cultural, ethnic, economic and/or geographic diversity of the University. This scholarship is no longer being awarded to additional students.

Renewal Eligibility

In order to retain your scholarship, you must remain a full-time student (defined as enrolling in twelve or more credits per semester). There is no minimum cumulative grade point average requirement for this scholarship. This scholarship is a revocable award from the University, and if withdrawn due to a student's failure to fulfill the terms & conditions, it will not be reinstated in the future.

Length of Scholarship

You may receive this scholarship for a maximum of eight semesters or until you graduate, whichever comes first.

Residency Classification

Scholarship eligibility will be re-evaluated based on changes to your residency classification. Changes in residency classification may result in a loss or reduction of scholarship assistance.

Gift Aid Tolerance

Your scholarship award may be reduced or cancelled if total gift aid (including grants, scholarships, employer tuition benefits, and VA educational benefits) exceeds the total cost of attendance as defined by the University.

Relationship to Need-Based Financial Aid

As a merit scholarship, this award is not based on need or financial aid eligibility. If you apply/have applied for need-based financial aid at the University, you will receive more information on your total financial aid package directly from Student Financial Services. Your scholarship will be calculated into your overall aid package.

Summer Session

Your scholarship may not be used to attend summer session classes.

Enrollment Status Changes

You may take an approved Leave of Absence from the University for up to two consecutive semesters and retain your scholarship upon your return. Your scholarship will be terminated if you choose to withdraw, become inactive, enroll less than full-time, or if you are suspended or dismissed from the University.
