Elizabethtown College Merit-Based Scholarships (Presidential, Provost, Dean's)
These scholarships are awarded to students on the basis of their high school academic achievements and test scores. Students awarded Elizabethtown College Scholarships must maintain a 2.75 cumulative grade point average in order to be eligible for renewal of the scholarships. These scholarships are not transferable to the summer sessions and are available for only eight semesters (10 semesters for OT students). This money is an outright scholarship to the student and does not have to be repaid. This aid is listed as a credit on the College bill. Amounts retain their original values all four years. No increases are given.
Music Performance Scholarships
These scholarships are awarded to first-year and transfer students who are outstanding performing musicians who meet the challenges of Elizabethtown’s academic environment. Scholarships are open to music and non-music majors. Awards range in value up to $4,000 annually and are renewable for four years. Scholarship winners must participate in a College music ensemble identified by the College and take private music lessons for credit in their primary performing areas to maintain their scholarships. Students must receive “pass” grades in the ensembles and no less than “B-” in the lessons to remain eligible for the scholarship.
These grants are available to students who demonstrate financial need. A student must apply annually to be considered for this grant. This money is an outright grant to the student and does not have to be repaid. This aid is listed as a credit on the College bill. The receipt of additional merit awards may impact this amount.
