What does the Warrior Senior Sprint Scholarship cover?

The Warrior Senior Sprint Scholarship is a scholarship for the spring-summer 2021 semester. You must apply for the award and if approved, your spring-summer tuition and fees will be covered by a scholarship, which is applied after all other sources of financial aid.

Who is eligible for the scholarship?

If you are an undergraduate student who enrolled in college for the first time in the fall 2015 or the fall 2016 semester with a plan of work indicating you can graduate by August 2020, you may be considered for this award. The plan of work must be reviewed and endorsed by your academic advisor. Eligible students must have completed the 2020-21 FAFSA and all aid requirements before award consideration.

How do I apply?

  1. Complete the 2020-21 Warrior Senior Sprint Scholarship Form which requires an advisor signature. Meet with an academic advisor to complete an approved academic plan of work. The academic plan will list courses required for you to graduate by the end of the spring-summer 2021 semester.

Submit the Warrior Senior Sprint Scholarship Form with your advisor signature to the Office of Student Financial Aid by Friday, May 14, 2021.

  1. Complete the 2020-21 FAFSA and all requirements. Review Academica for any outstanding financial aid requirements.

How will the decision be made about who will receive the scholarship?

Priority will be given to students who are enrolled full-time during fall 2020 and winter 2021 semesters and have a GPA over 2.5.

Do I have to be enrolled full-time in the fall and winter semesters in order to qualify for this scholarship?

Each scholarship application will be considered on a case-by-case basis. However, priority will be given to students who enrolled full-time, since the purpose of the scholarship is to encourage graduation in a timely manner.

Is full-time enrollment required in spring-summer semester as well?

No. You need to take the classes that are on the plan of work leading to graduation by August 2020. If you only need one or two classes, then you should not take any additional courses.

The Office of Student Financial Aid will confirm you are in the required courses before disbursing the award in the spring-summer semester.

Is there a credit hour maximum for the spring-summer semester?

Yes, the award will cover up to 9 credit hours in the spring-summer 2021 semester.

Must I follow the plan of work?

Yes. If changes must be made to the plan of work, they must be approved by your academic advisor. If you are no longer on track to graduate in August 2021, you will not be awarded the scholarship.

How will academic advisors provide their endorsement of the application and plan of work?

The advisor will review the plan of work and determine if the student has the potential to graduate by August 2021, if the plan of work is followed. The advisor will also need to sign the Senior Sprint Scholarship form.

What is the deadline to meet with an academic advisor and complete a plan of work?

May 14, 2021

When will I be notified of I am eligible?

The award will be posted along with any other spring-summer awards beginning in April 2021. Awards can be viewed in Academica.
