Who Should Apply
Incoming freshman, transfers, and continuing students with a cumulative GPA of at least 3.7 are encouraged to apply. Available for both domestic and international students. Full time (12+ credits) required. A 3.7 GPA is the minimum eligibility requirement; however, it does not guarantee an award. The higher your cumulative GPA is, the better chance you have at receiving the scholarship.
When scholarships are awarded, your cumulative Ensign College GPA is used on the day of awarding. This is due to grades, at times, not being finalized until after a term begins or very close to a new term start date. If you are a new student and do not yet have a current Ensign College GPA, your average transfer credit GPA will be used. If you don't have a transfer GPA, your high school GPA will be used for awarding.
Students who are graduating with an AS, AAS, or BAS degree and have been awarded the scholarship may be eligible for a "last semester exception" if they are taking less than 12 credits in their final semester. Students awarded the scholarship will receive additional instructions on how to submit this request. For more information about this policy, please view the Scholarship Policies .
April 1 (Spring), August 15 (Fall) and December 1 (Winter)
*Priority will be given to those who meet the deadline. However, applications may be accepted until the last Friday before the new semester begins. Students who apply after the priority deadline may still be awarded the scholarship if funding is available. Students will be unable to apply for the scholarship when there is no remaining funding for the term.
Award amount will be based on the applicant pool, the students GPA, and available funding – and may vary each semester.
