  • The Presidential Scholarship is awarded to entering traditional freshmen who generally rank in the top 1 to 2 percent in their high school class. The Presidential Scholarship is awarded to the top 20 admitted students each year.

The scholarship will be adjusted for only one half of other non-tuition-specific outside resources or scholarships. The remaining half may be used for additional educational expenses.
  • Presidential awards also cover the average cost of a double room or actual charges, whichever is less (excluding meal plans and fees), if the student lives on campus.

Duration of Scholarship: Four years
