Scholarships through the School of Environment and Natural Resources

We are proud to have so many high-achieving students in the School of Environment and Natural Resources and we award as many scholarships as possible. Scholarships through SENR are based on academic record, leadership skills, financial need, and major. Our scholarships are awarded during spring semester for the following academic year.

How to Apply

To be considered for SENR scholarships, you must submit the College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences Scholarship Application, linked below.  Students receiving aid from CFAES and SENR must reapply every year to continue to receive scholarship funds, and students who have not previously received scholarships from the College or School are welcome to apply each year.  The list of available scholarships can be found here.
