Merit Scholarships

2014-2015 Freshman Scholarship Program

We believe in recognizing and rewarding your academic achievements. That's why, in addition to a substantial need-based financial aid program, the University has developed a generous merit-based scholarship program for incoming freshmen that considers all applicants, regardless of financial need.

All merit-based awards are good for four consecutive years of study at the University, provided the student maintains the minimum required GPA (2.5 at the end of year one, 2.6 at the end of year two, 2.7 at the end of year three, and 2.8 at the end of year four). If you qualify for an award in more than one category, the Scholarship Committee will grant you the highest single award for which you are eligible.

In addition, need-based financial aid may be available to assist you with the costs of tuition, room, and board. We encourage all students to apply for need-based financial aid by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at, and use SU's federal school code, 002107.

Merit-Based Scholarships

The University offers four levels of merit-based awards to select highly qualified students. When awarding scholarships, SU considers the rigor of a student's high school curriculum in addition to his/her academic GPA, class rank, and standardized test scores.

President's Scholarship$16,000 per year
Dean's Scholarship$14,000 per year
Trustee's Scholarship$12,000 per year
Faculty Scholarship$7,000-$10,000 per year

*Please note that all scholarships are competitive and the exact amount of a student's scholarship is determined by the Scholarship Committee after s/he is accepted to the University. Also, the scholarship program changes from each year based on the quality of the applicant pool.
