Scholarships for Current Students

Baylor University COVID-19 Update: Students experiencing education-related financial hardships due to COVID-19 can apply for a student emergency award through the President’s Excellence Fund. These applications will be reviewed by our Office of Student Financial Aid, and awards will be made as quickly as possible in hopes of helping ease some financial burdens. If you need assistance, you may learn more about requesting an emergency award as well as access an online request form.


The Honors College is proud to continue to offer scholarships to current Honors College students. Students who receive scholarships through the Honors College are eligible to receive this funding for four years.
