Incoming Freshman and Transfer Merit Scholarships

There is a wide variety of merit-based awards for incoming freshman and first time Grand Valley students. Most require high academic achievement and are automatically awarded to applicants based on information provided in the student's admission application.

Initial scholarship eligibility is reviewed and determined at the time of admission.  Additional consideration for scholarship and/or grant assistance will be determined in mid-January and will be sent out by the Office of Financial Aid & Scholarships.  All applicants are strongly encouraged to file a FAFSA for maximum consideration for grant and scholarship aid. Please review specific scholarship opportunities for deadlines.
