Clarion initiates merit-based scholarships for freshmen

August 18, 2015

Clarion University has announced the availability of merit scholarships for seniors in the high school class of 2016 who meet academic criteria and apply before the January 15th, 2016 deadline.

Students with a high school GPA of 3.0 or higher and an SAT score of at least 1,000 (critical reading and math) or ACT score of at least 21, will be awarded between $1,000 and $3,000.

"These scholarships are in response to the fact that we are getting more academically talented applicants applying to Clarion each year," said Ron Nowaczyk, Ph.D., Clarion provost. "We want to reward these students for their accomplishments and help them and their families make Clarion their college of choice."

Eligibility will be determined through the admissions process. Students will be notified of their award shortly after receiving letters of admission to Clarion.

"We want to notify families early of the scholarship award," said Dave McFarland, director of scholarships. "Families are trying to figure out how to afford college education, and we want to get the information into their hands early."

The scholarship, open to all majors, is renewable for three additional years, as long as the student maintains a 3.0 GPA.
