See the full list of scholarships and awards available in the College of Liberal Arts. Not all scholarships listed are awarded every year, and this list is subject to change at any time. The number of scholarship awards and amounts vary based on donor guidelines and available funds.

  • CLA-Wide Scholarships are open to students with any CLA major. Scholarship recipients will be notified in April 2018 and recognized at the CLA End of the Year Awards Reception.
  • Students are also encouraged to check with their individual departments for additional scholarship opportunities and details.
  • Transfer students may apply for many of the CLA-Wide scholarships. Since transfer students have not yet established a University of Minnesota cumulative GPA or relationships with UMD faculty and staff, these applicants should submit transcripts and letters of recommendation from their most recent school.
  • CLA students are also eligible for campus scholarships. Information and application materials can be found on the UMD One Stop website.
