COMPETITIVE MERIT SCHOLARSHIPS

Competitive merit scholarships are renewable for four years. First-year students must enroll summer or fall immediately following high school graduation to receive consideration.

Consideration

  • First-year students accepted for admission by early February receive automatic consideration. A scholarship application is not required.
  • Consideration is based on high school GPA and standardized test score. Verify Auburn has received your most recent academic information in the Applicant Portal. Auburn will accept the ACT Superscore Report. Auburn will also calculate a superscore for the SAT and any individual score reports from ACT. Only your best testing result will be used for scholarship consideration. Updated highest scores from individual tests must be received by Auburn by January 10. Scores received after this deadline will not be reviewed for competitive merit scholarship consideration.

Awards

  • Scholarships are awarded competitively. Consideration does not guarantee an award. Each entering class competes with itself. Actual awards are determined based on the number of qualified admitted students, the credentials of those applicants, and available funding.
  • First-year students accepted for admission earlier are more likely to receive an award.  
  • Scholarships are awarded mid-November, mid-December, and mid-February.
  • Recipients are notified by email to their Auburn email account and by postal mail to their permanent address.

  • Additional consideration is given to first-generation college students and students from underserved areas in Alabama.

    also be considered.
