CASNR-Wide Scholarships

Making college a reality for interested students is a priority for CASNR. We try to make funding available to incoming Freshmen, Transfer Students and Continuing Students. Typically, the college awards more than $500,000 in scholarships to students each year. Most do not require a separate application. Scholarship amounts range from $100 to $2,000 per year. Some are renewable for up to four years, depending on the scholarship and a student's academic performance. Freshmen and Transfer Students apply for scholarships simply by applying to the college. Upper class Continuing Students can apply by completing the Upper Class Scholarship Application. To apply, log into MyRED and select the Scholarship Application for Current Undergraduate Students.

Department Scholarships

In addition to the College-Wide Scholarships available to new, transfer and continuing students, Departments and Academic Units within CASNR provide a variety of scholarship options. The amounts of the scholarships and application requirements vary for each award. Many departments have additional opportunities that require additional applications or materials. For more information on the opportunities for specific departments, please visit their website or contact the CASNR Dean's Office (402-472-2201).
