Scholarships and Financial Aid

Scholarships for students seeking rewarding careers involving food, family, or the environment are made possible by generous gifts from many firms and individuals. We greatly appreciate the support of our benefactors. The Bumpers College was able to award more than $650,000 to students last year.

The criteria for these scholarships include academics, financial need, interests, organizational involvement, etc. Because most Bumpers College scholarships are one-year awards, all current and prospective Bumpers College undergraduate students are encouraged to apply each year.  ALL applicants who are U.S. citizens are requested to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as early as possible each year.

The 2017-2018 Bumpers College Scholarship Application is closed
The scholarship application process is open from January 1-February 15 every year. 
Before applying, please read the instructions on the "How to Apply" tab they will lead you to the application portal.
