Freshmen and transfer scholarships at Felician College

Felician College has restructured its undergraduate scholarship awards to better accommodate students during these difficult economic times. Our awards are very generous:

– Freshmen scholarships: from $9,000 to full tuition, based on either high school GPA or SAT score

– Transfer scholarships: from $8,000 to $16,500, based on cumulative GPA from any college or university in the world the student transfers from

All scholarships are renewable for up to four years of study, and unlike our previous scholarships, students are not required to take the SAT or ACT in order to receive the award. A combination of SAT/ACT score and high school GPA is only required for students who wish to receive a full tuition scholarship. It’s a great opportunity for students to realize their dreams of studying in the United States without breaking the bank!
