Schedule a Visit to Compete in the Fall Scholarship Event
Pick your scholarship day: November 3 - 21, 2014
Sign up to compete any Monday, Wednesday, or Friday between November 3 and November 21.
Do you qualify to compete?
In order to be eligible to compete, you must be a first-time college student and be accepted to the University of Mary as a member of the Class of 2019. You must also have a minimum cumulative high school GPA of 3.25 and a composite ACT score of 21.
What do you need to do?
Pick a Monday, Wednesday, or Friday from November 3 to November 21 to come visit campus and compete for one of four scholarships. The scholarships stack on top of your academic scholarship amount. This top prize would raiser your total scholarship up to $14,000, the second prize would raise your total to $10,000, and the two third-place prizes would raise your total $8,500. All scholarships are renewable each year for four years. Competition participants will need to prep a portfolio on a leadership experience and present it to a panel of U-Mary staff members. Participants will also respond to an essay prompt. Full details will be emailed to you once you register for the event.
