Scholarship Description: Emory College, Oxford College, and the Goizueta Business School offer merit-based scholarships to incoming first-year students through the Emory University Scholars Program. This highly selective program not only recognizes and provides financial awards to exceptional students with a history of academic excellence and outstanding extracurricular engagement, but also challenges those students to utilize their talents to impact the Emory community, Atlanta, and the world. Selection into the Emory University Scholars Program comes with the expectation that each Scholar will invest energy in active engagement with the community of Scholars and use the resources and support provided by the Program to shape the future of the University. Emory University Scholars are “intellectually carbonated” individuals, leaders among their peers, and “spark plugs” in their communities. They are forward-thinkers who stretch the boundaries of intellectual inquiry, artists with distinctive talents and creativity and difference-makers that act as catalysts for positive change. Emory University actively seeks these budding visionaries to infuse energy into the Emory, Oxford, and Goizueta communities as they pursue their passions. The Emory University Scholars Program is committed to building a holistic community of Scholars and is uniquely designed to enrich each student’s personal academic experience while intentionally impacting community at Emory and beyond.

Selection Criteria: The selection for merit-based scholarships is administered by the Emory University Office of Undergraduate Admission in conjunction with Emory College, Oxford College, and the Goizueta Business School. The scholarship selection process remains separate from the financial aid application process and will have no impact on a student’s need-based financial aid award. Scholar applicants will receive notification of their standing in the selection process by the end of January. If selected as a finalist, students will be required to attend the finalist interview weekend in February / March (2014 dates to be determined). The scholar weekend activities are designed to help finalists become better acquainted with programs and opportunities available to them and to aid the Scholars Selection Committee in making its final choices for the various awards. To be considered for a finalist award, attendance at the Scholars interview weekend is mandatory.
