Access to Excellence Scholarship
The Access to Excellence Scholarship is open to full-time students in the College of Letters & Science with demonstrated academic excellence. Criteria for this scholarship include a minimum 3.5 cumulative GPA; sophomore, junior or senior standing; and a record of extracurricular and co-curricular engagement such as research or other learning experiences.
The donors to this scholarship wish to support students who might otherwise not have the opportunity to pursue higher education. This scholarship varies in amount from $500 to $1,500.
Students who have an up-to-date Panther Scholarship Portal General Application and the College of Letters & Science Scholarships and Awards Application will be considered, typically in spring each year between February and April. No additional or separate application is required; students should thoroughly fill out the Panther Scholarship Portal General Application and the College of Letters & Science Scholarships and Awards Application. Awards given in spring are for the following school year so students graduating that same spring or summer are not eligible. E.G. applications reviewed in Spring 2023 are for Fall 2023; students graduating in May or August 2023 are not eligible.
