First-Year Student Scholarships
You’re looking for scholarships. We make applying for them easy!
Just send in your admission application, and, unless otherwise noted with an asterisk (*), you can receive multiple scholarships. (Are you looking for Transfer Scholarships?)
amounts and award guidelines are subject to change at the University’s
discretion, and they may be adjusted based on the competitiveness of the
applicant pool. International students are not able to be considered for the full-tuition Distinguished Scholar Award.
*The guidelines shown for the awards noted with an asterisk reflect
criteria we take into account to offer the award. A student may receive no more than one of
these asterisk awards during the same academic year. If the GPA is weighted on the official transcript, SPU will calculate an unweighted GPA. All merit scholarships are awarded based on test scores and GPA at the time a student submits an application. Final decision will come from Undergraduate Admissions. With the exception of the Visit Scholarship, all scholarships are renewable for up to four academic years.
Please note that scholarship qualifications below are based upon the new SAT as of March 2016. If you have taken the old SAT, please refer to the College Board's concordance resource (link opens as PDF)-- SPU considers the Critical Reading + Math scores for the old SAT.
