Academic Merit Scholarship

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 high school GPA will be used for awarding.

Students who are graduating with an AS or AAS 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 must submit a request by clicking here . For more information about this policy, please view the Scholarship Policies .

Priority Deadline*

April 1 (Spring), August 15 (Fall) and December 1 (Winter)

*Priority will be given to those who meet the deadline. However, applications will be accepted up 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.

Award Amount
