All applicants for admission are considered for merit-based scholarships. No additional scholarship application is required.

It is not necessary to apply for need-based financial aid to receive full consideration for merit-based scholarships. Students applying Early Decision receive the same consideration for merit-based scholarships as students who apply Regular Decision.

Students selected for merit-based scholarships are notified by the Admissions Office at the same time they are notified of admission. Half of Macalester students received a merit-based scholarship in 2018-2019 (many merit scholarship recipients also receive need-based aid).

All of Macalester’s merit scholarships are awarded for eight semesters.
