Important Scholarship Deadlines
What will you qualify for?
Stevenson has developed a generous merit-based scholarship program for incoming students that considers all applicants, regardless of financial need. When awarding scholarships, we consider the rigor of a student’s high school curriculum in addition to their academic GPA, class rank, and standardized test scores. High School GPA is based on a 4.0 weighted scale/unweighted academic scale.
- Merit-based awards range from $10,000 – $21,000.
- All merit-based awards are good for four consecutive years of study at the university.
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), and use Stevenson’s Federal School Code, 002107.
*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.
Full Tuition Award
The Presidential Fellowship recognizes incoming freshmen who have the potential to make a lasting impact on the Stevenson community as shown by their commitment to academic excellence along with proven leadership in school-based activities, community service, and/or athletics. Presidential fellows receive a full-tuition scholarship for 4 years and an invitation to participate in either the Service Scholars or Leadership Scholars Program.

Transfer students who have demonstrated significant academic achievement may be awarded the Stevenson University Transfer Scholarship. This merit-based award may reach $21,300 annually for a maximum of four consecutive years. All applicants are automatically reviewed.
Merit-based awards range from $12,000 – $21,300.
GPA and credits considered: Earned by February 1 for fall start and October 1 for spring start. Scholarships are based on full-time, continuous enrollment. Stevenson University Online students are not eligible to receive scholarships.
Transfer Specialty Scholarships & Grants
Many scholarships and grants are offered by private sources, such as fraternal and religious organizations, labor unions, professional associations, social groups, and ethnic associations. Because they are private and therefore not administered by Stevenson, you will need to research and apply for them on your own. The best place to start your research is your local church or synagogue or a local club such as the Lions or Kiwanis. In addition, various publications contain private resource information; they can be found in your local library or bookstore.
The following free scholarship search engines provide information on thousands of scholarships as well as information on financial aid and money management.

Report Your Private Funding
Any outside funding you receive must be taken into account when your eligibility is determined for need-based financial aid, such as the Direct Student Loan program. If you have been offered funding from a source outside the University, you should notify the Financial Aid Office of the amount and of the donor. In a few situations, outside funding may affect your SU financial aid award.
Through the generosity of many individuals, alumni, foundations, and businesses, Stevenson University offers more than 60 endowed scholarships that support our upper division students (sophomores, juniors, and seniors) working toward the successful completion of their degrees.
