I applied for a scholarship for a Coca-Cola First-Generation or a State Farm Scholarship. Will interviews and/or selection days still be held?
Scholarship selection activities scheduled for face-to-face on campus interactions have been cancelled. However, each scholarship selection process may continue in an online format. The program coordinators for each scholarship will contact you via email to make adjustments to the selection process. Please feel free to contact the appropriate staff person for questions.
