Special Scholarships

Special scholarships relate to particular areas of study, talent, or accomplishment and require that you submit supplemental application(s) and/or supporting material to the College by the stated deadlines in order to be considered. Selection for any special scholarship presumes admission to the College. Scholarships are renewable for recipients remaining three years at Centre. Larger recognition may supersede smaller awards. For students who also apply for financial aid, any special scholarship recognition will count toward meeting institutionally determined need. While students may submit applications for consideration in multiple scholarship programs, because these scholarships incorporate on-going participation requirements, recipients will be limited to, at most, recognition in two programs.
