Once the online Nomination Form is submitted, the nominee will immediately receive a confirmation email, which includes a link to an interest form. Upon completion of this interest form, the student will receive an email with a link to the Presidential Scholarship application. The application consists of eight short-answer questions, which must be answered and uploaded by January 2.
Emails will come from firstname.lastname@example.org. Please make sure that all email accounts are set up to receive messages from this email address. Some high school email accounts may filter our emails to junk mail or block them altogether.
Nominators and nominees will receive immediate confirmations by email. Please contact our office if you do not receive a confirmation email.
Students will not have access to the Presidential Scholarship Application until they have applied to Villanova, have received the nomination confirmation email, and have completed the online form indicating their interest in being considered for the Presidential Scholarship.
Optional Consideration for the Presidential Scholarship for Historically Underrepresented Students at Villanova University: Each year, the University awards a portion of Presidential Scholarships to historically underrepresented students who have demonstrated leadership in their ability to make significant academic and social contributions to their school and communities. Eligible candidates are considered for both the Presidential Scholarship and the Presidential Scholarship for historically underrepresented students. Examples of historically underrepresented students include but are not limited to those who identify as low-income (normally Pell Grant Eligible), African American/Black, Latino/Hispanic, American Indian/Native Alaskan, Asian/Pacific Islander, and/or those who are the first in their family to pursue a college education. Eligible candidates for the Presidential Scholarship for historically underrepresented students must be a U.S. Citizen or Permanent Resident, although international students are welcome to apply for the Presidential Scholarship.
