    which are you applying for? I am applying for the Dammon Deans Scholarship, the one where you have to be in the learning community and live there

    ^^ i didn't know there are specific ones, I just thought you use one scholarship to apply to all the College of Liberal Arts scholarships? Can you give me the link to where they list individual scholarships?

    yeah, I mean you just fill out the College of Liberal Arts scholarship application, but when I went to the CLA website and looked at what scholarships are available for incoming freshmen there are only 3 or 4 and most of them are very subject specific (I believe one was for people going into drama, things like that) and then the one that was really avaliable to all CLA kids was the dammon deans scholar program, which is basically a living learning community/program that comes with a $1000 scholarship (unless you have already received a presedential/trustees, in which case you don't get the scholarship portion)
