Foundation Scholarship Criteria
Most scholarships require certain grade point averages (GPA) and specify a minimum credit hour enrollment. Scholarships may also be based on college major, financial need, residency and other criteria specified by the donor. Applicants do not have to specify a particular scholarship on their application in order to receive a Foundation scholarship. All applicants will be considered for any scholarship that they are qualified to receive, based on requirements and availability. Recipients are selected on multiple criteria and funds are limited. Not all qualified applicants will receive an award.
When scholarship donors don't specify other criteria, the following criteria applies:
Foundation Criteria for Full-Time Students: Enrolled with a minimum of 12 credit hours per semester; are either first time college students with a minimum final high school grade point average (GPA) of 2.5 or are continuing college students with a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.5.
Foundation Criteria for Half-Time Students: Enrolled with a minimum of 6 - 11 credit hours per semester with a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.5. There are limited scholarships available for half-time students.
