Students who change majors will lose this scholarship but be awarded a scholarship or grant for the equivalent amount and with the same terms, excluding the major requirement.

NOTE: NCAA Division III Bylaws prohibit the awarding of financial awards, grants and scholarships to intercollegiate student-athletes on the basis of athletic participation, leadership, ability or performance. As a result, eligibility for scholarships will be assessed without the consideration of athletic participation, leadership, ability or performance.
