We review your high school GPA and SAT/ACT test scores (updated testing information can be found here) to determine your high school academic achievement, and, based on that, we’ll award you one of the following scholarships. The scholarship you earn for your first year is renewable and awarded for eight consecutive semesters (excluding summer) of undergraduate enrollment or until a bachelor's degree is achieved (whichever comes first) on Waynesburg University’s main campus. Students must also achieve the required GPA for renewal.
Who can apply: All accepted first-year freshman students will be considered for an Achievement Award based on their application for admission. Scholarships below are effective for new first-year freshman students beginning fall 2022. Scholarship amounts are reduced for students who do not reside in University housing.
Out-of-state students: Out-of-state students who receive an Achievement Award also qualify for our State Scholarship, worth an additional $3,000/year. Additionally, students who travel more than 300 miles one way from their home address may qualify for a travel voucher for a campus visit - get more information here!
