The gift of scholarships
Scholarships are a form of gift aid that does not need to be repaid. Scholarships may be awarded for academic excellence, to recognize and encourage development, or for extraordinary academic or athletic talent. The aid may be provided by the College, by generous private donors, or by other sources.
Merit scholarships are awarded to Presentation College students based on prior academic performance and standardized test scores. These awards are made during the admissions process and do not require a separate application. Merit scholarships are awarded during the fall and spring terms and are renewable for up to eight semesters.
Student athletic scholarships are awarded to student athletes by Presentation College coaches in compliance with the policies and procedures of the College, the North Star Athletic Association (NSAA), and the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA). The amounts and number of awards may vary.
Students may receive up to $500 per semester (fall/spring only) match for competitive scholarships from outside sources.
Contact the Financial Aid Office for full eligibility requirements.
