The Presidential Scholarship is a renewable, merit-based award covering full tuition, room, board (up to 21 meals per week plan), general fee, and the cost of textbooks for eight consecutive 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.
In order to be considered for the Presidential Scholarship, students must first be nominated by the chief academic officer of their high school (principal, president, headmaster), secondary school counselor, or an official school designee. They can also be nominated by a representative from a home school entity or non-profit community-based organization dedicated to helping high school students with the college search process.
The student then must submit a completed application for admission by December 1.
