George Washington Carver

One hundred full-tuition scholarships are awarded to incoming US multicultural freshmen directly out of high school as part of the George Washington Carver (GWC) Scholarship program. To be considered, students must rank in the upper 25 percent of their high school class AND have a 3.50 grade point average AND present a minimum ACT composite score of 24 or minimum SAT score of 1160 (Reading and Writing+Math). Students must identify as American Indian or Alaskan Native, African American, Asian American, Native Hawaiian or other Pacific Islander, Hispanic or Latino/a/x, or Multi-Racial on the application for undergraduate admission. A student must be a U.S. citizen, permanent resident, refugee, or asylee to qualify.

Students will be notified directly if they are selected to receive the GWC scholarship. The scholarship is renewable for an additional three years (for a total of four years or eight semesters), provided the student maintains a cumulative 2.50 grade point average, and each academic year completes 24 new credit hours at the university. In order to receive the scholarship, the student must file a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
