Candidates must have a minimum combined SAT score of 1200 or better (critical reading and math) and rank in the top 20% of their class. Students with a combined SAT score of 1150 may be considered if they rank in the top 15% of their class. Applicants who meet the academic criteria for scholarship consideration are encouraged to apply early in the fall of their senior year.
The University Scholarship Committee reviews all applications submitted by the assigned due date to determine the allocation of awards. Consideration will be based on the strength of academic achievements in high school, as well as involvement in co-curricular activities and accomplishments within the community.
Scholarship applicants should file their FAFSA forms in January of their senior year.
