Scholarships & Financial Aid

Students who choose one of the majors in the School of Plant Sciences can apply for scholarships specific to their major, college or university. For instance, students in these majors are also part of the College of Agriculture, Life & Environmental Sciences (CALES), which offers more than $1 million in scholarships for majors in our college.

As a CALES student, you're eligible for nearly 200 scholarships reserved specifically for majors in our college. You don't have to have a perfect GPA either — you could qualify based on your campus and community involvement, personal background and experiences, or career goals. Award amounts vary up to a few thousand dollars.

How to find & apply for scholarships

Once you’re admitted to the university and have a NetID, you’ll be able to log into Scholarship Universe to apply for scholarships offered by the university, CALES and organizations outside the university. We recommend completing your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) first to increase the number of scholarships available to you.
