At W&J, we believe in recognizing and rewarding students' excellence in academic achievements by offering merit-based scholarships. The Office of Admission takes a holistic approach when evaluating a student for a merit award. Academic performance, curriculum, class rank (if available), standardized test scores (unless the student elects our score optional policy), and co-curricular involvement are all considered. W&J offers four tiers of merit awards: the W&J Thrive Scholarship, the Howard J. Burnett Presidential Scholarship, the W&J Scholars Award, and the Dean's Award.
Annual scholarship amounts are divided equally over the fall and spring semesters and can be used to lower the overall college costs. W&J's merit awards are available for eight semesters provided the recipient maintains full-time enrollment status, remains in a degree-seeking program, abides by the regulations governing college life, makes Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP), and meets GPA requirements for his/her respective award. The GPA requirements are reviewed at the end of every spring term for the upcoming academic year.
While international students are not eligible for merit, all admitted international students will receive an international grant valued at $17,000.
