The AUSOM application is used to award all departmental scholarships. Approximately $120,000 is given to students each year. Qualifications vary for each scholarship and may include grades, financial need, and certain residency requirements.
A Message for Incoming Freshmen:
The McWhorter School of Building Science has two annual scholarship opportunities for in-coming freshmen. To be considered for scholarships within the McWhorter School of Building Science, incoming freshmen must submit the AUSOM application by 4:45 pm CST on the day of the deadline. The criteria for selection is a combination of the state of residency, high school GPA, ACT/SAT test scores, and financial need. The students chosen for the award will receive a formal congratulatory letter from the school head outlining the terms of his/her award.
It is important that students have filled out a Free Application for Financial Aid, called a FAFSA. The FAFSA may be filled out online. The FAFSA should be on file with the Auburn University Student Financial Aid Office. When filling out the FAFSA, students should submit the code for Auburn University in order to send the information to Auburn. Most McWhorter School of Building Science scholarships stipulate that a FAFSA form be on file with Auburn University. Even if a student does not qualify for financial aid, she/he might still be eligible for a School scholarship if a FAFSA is on file. Please check the their site for FAFSA deadlines.
