Undergraduate Awards and Scholarships

The English Department annually grants awards and scholarships to undergraduate English majors who have demonstrated academic excellence.

Several of these awards and scholarships require application through AUSOM, the Auburn University Scholarship Opportunity Manager. Interested students can search, review requirements, apply, and accept awards for available scholarship opportunities using this online application.  Students are only required to complete the AUSOM application once each academic year.  The application deadline is March 1, 2014.
