Through the generous support of many industries and community organizations the Rinker School awards close to $50,000 in scholarships each academic year. The School has approximately 30-40 scholarship awards available, typically $1,000 – $2,000 each in value.
The Scholarship application process starts at the beginning of each fall term. All scholarship information, criteria, and deadlines are posted on the first floor of Rinker Hall. Applications are available the first day of classes in the fall terms with the deadline for submission typically at the end of September or the beginning of October. Incomplete or late applications will not be considered. Also, those students graduating in the fall term in which the scholarship application is due are not eligible to apply. The Scholarship committee usually meets at least two times between the beginning of November and December to determine the awardees. Student notifications are typically made between mid-December and mid-January. Disbursement of scholarship funds are generally made by the end of March, however non-resident alien payments could take longer.
