Flagship Scholarships, funded by individual donors, organizations, and alumni chapters through the association, were awarded 181 students.
Residents receive $2,500 per year and nonresidents receive $20,500 per year. All recipients can earn up to an additional $1,500 by participating in the President’s Student Aide program by working in an on-campus job.
