A scholarship is an award of financial aid for a student to further their education.  Scholarships are awarded based upon various criteria, which usually reflect the values and purposes of the donor or founder of the award.  Scholarship money is not required to be repaid.  A&M-Commerce has a scholarship portal accessed through a student's myLEO where students may apply for most general and departmental university scholarships.  Our department's website also maintains a listing of many outside scholarship opportunities available for students.  More details can be found on our website by visiting:
