Fifth Year Funding
Norlin Scholars may apply for funding for an additional semester or full year, but they must maintain undergraduate status in order to receive additional scholarship monies. Students who are earning concurrent degrees (bachelors/master’s) will be ineligible if they change to graduate status. Criteria for eligibility for funding are the same as for Norlin Enrichment Funds, as are the deadlines. For information on eligibility go here. For information on deadlines go to guidelines.
In order to apply, students write a letter of inquiry to be reviewed by the Norlin Director. The letter must address two areas:
- Rationale for additonal funding: The student should explain why additional time for graduation is needed (two or more majors or certificates, time off, study abroad, personal or extenuating circumstances, etc.)
- Eligibility criteria: How has the student been involved with and contributed to the Norlin community over the course of her or his time here? Provide detailed examples.
