Merit Scholarships/Grants

Scholarships are awarded to traditional undergraduate students for academic achievement and merit based upon their success in high school and on the ACT or SAT. The Presidential Scholarship, Academic Scholarship, and Discovery Grant are mutually exclusive. For scholarships that have a priority application date, students admitted after that date will be considered on a space and funds available basis.
