The School of Forestry and Wildlife Sciences offers departmental scholarships to students within the school based on academic performance. More than $100,000 is awarded annually, thanks to our donors. Each year, scholarship recipients are recognized and when possible get to meet the donors responsible for funding the award they receive.

The FAFSA is the only form a student is required to complete to be considered for student assistance from any of the Title IV, HEA programs except for information needed to ensure the student’s eligibility for such assistance (e.g., information needed to complete verification or to demonstrate compliance with the student eligibility provisions of the HEA and the regulations).
