Contributor Scholarship Application – Fall 2021
There are varying levels of scholarship amounts for Contributors, based upon the involvement and the content created. Additionally, students can hold up to 2 (max) Contributor scholarships per semester.

Scholarship positions are not jobs. We cannot verify employment for you in the future based on these positions. We can state that you were involved, that you received a scholarship as compensation, but in the traditional sense of verifying employment, it simply doesn’t work.
