About the Presidential Scholarship

The Presidential Scholarship is a renewable, merit-based award covering full tuition, room, board (meal plan includes up to 21 meals per week), general fee, and the cost of textbooks for eight semesters. Representing diverse intellectual, social, ethnic, and economic backgrounds, Presidential Scholars are transformational leaders both on and off campus who have demonstrated a love of learning and a commitment to enhancing both their local and broader civic communities.

Each year, of the 24 Presidential Scholarships offered, 6 scholarships are reserved for candidates from historically underrepresented groups, including African American/Black, Latino/Hispanic, American Indian/Native Alaskan, Asian/Pacific Islander, first in their family to pursue a college education, and low-income (generally Pell Grant eligible) students.
