Scholarships for Undergraduates

To reward your hard work, the University offers merit scholarships, worth up to $98,000 (over four years) to incoming students.

Merit scholarships are based on test scores (ACT or SAT) and GPA, and you will automatically be considered for a merit scholarship as part of the admission process. To determine your scholarship eligibility, simply apply for admission; there is no application fee.

These scholarship ranges are four-year amounts that include eligibility for our textbook and study abroad scholarships.

Awards may or may not be renewable, so be sure to note whether they are and make sure you meet the requirements each year. Also, you'll need to notify Flyer Student Services of any external scholarships you receive. Such awards are counted as a resource and may reduce your eligibility for other need-based aid.

 

Through generous donations to the University from our alumni and friends, we are proud to assist our students with achieving their goals by awarding a variety of scholarships.
