Awarded to incoming freshmen on the basis of a Founders' Scholarship Interview, the Founders' Scholarship recognizes a student’s potential to become an active, engaged member of the Stevenson community. All admitted students with a minimum GPA of 3.0 on a 4-point scale or 80 on a 100-point scale and a minimum score of 1090 on the new two-section SAT or 1500 on the old three-section SAT, or a 22 ACT composite score are invited to interview for this scholarship by registering for a Specialty Scholarship Interview.
There is no separate application for the Founders’ Scholarship. To be considered, apply to the University by the January 15 Specialty Scholarship Deadline; once admitted, complete a Specialty Scholarship Interview by March 1.
The Founders' Scholarship, in the amount of $2,000, is awarded in addition to another Stevenson University merit-based scholarship. Like all of Stevenson’s scholarships, the Founders' Scholarship is renewable for a total of four years.
Students applying to the Service Scholars Program or the Leadership Scholars Program, and completing a Specialty Scholarship Interview will be automatically considered for the Founders’ Scholarship. The Founders’ Scholarship may be awarded in conjunction with either the Service Scholars Program or the Leadership Scholars Program. In this case, a student would earn a total annual award of $4,000 on top of merit-based scholarships.
Presidential Fellowship applicants are encouraged to wait to schedule a Scholarship Interview until after they have been notified if they’ve been selected as a finalist. Finalist notifications are mailed. Students selected as finalists for the Presidential Fellowship do not need to schedule and complete a Specialty Scholarship interview; the finalist interview also serves as a Specialty Scholarship interview.
We encourage parents and guardians to attend as they are brought in towards the end of the interview.
