There are two scholarships available through the Office of Student Engagement's Leadership & Volunteerism department. The Contribution to Campus Life scholarships are designed to provide students with an opportunity to excel in areas of leadership and service through a direct, hands-on approach. The recipients of these scholarships are decided based on their current involvement with leadership and service as well as their willingness to grow in either of those areas.

• If a senior is selected, he/she must be attending graduate school or participating in the Fifth Year program for the award period.
