Aim and Benefits of Emory University Undergraduate Scholarships
- The scholarship is partial or fully-funded
- All students, regardless of citizenship, can be considered for scholar programs
- Applicants do not need to be nominated by a high school counselor to be considered
- Students must be applying for any of the three phases of admission at Emory University
- The selection for merit-based scholar programs is administered by the office of admission in partnership with esteemed faculty
- Roughly 8,000 – 10,000 students apply to be scholars each year. 175-200 students are selected as scholar finalists from the applicants. Finalists are required to attend an on-campus scholars’ finalists visit held in the spring. Expenses to the campus are not on the students
- The visit includes activities and interviews designed to help finalists become better acquainted with Emory University and the distinct opportunities available for them
- Applicants who are not selected as finalists for the program are still fully reviewed for admission under their selected application plan and will also automatically be considered for other smaller merit-based scholarships.
- The scholar selection process is completely separate from the financial aid process. When a student is eligible for both merit scholarships and financial aid, merit scholarships are awarded first. Students who applied for financial aid may also be eligible for need-based grants and loans if there is a remaining need beyond the merit scholarship award.
