Transfer Merit-Based Scholarships
2014-2015 Transfer Merit-Based Scholarships
All undergraduate transfer students admitted to Carson-Newman are automatically considered for our Transfer Merit-Based Scholarships; no separate scholarship application is required for these awards.
These awards are made without regard to financial need, and are intended to recognize those students whose accomplishments show them capable of continued success at Carson-Newman University. Recipients are selected primarily on the basis of the strength of their applications for admissions. The scholarship profiles described below are based on the college transfer GPA. Recipients will be granted the highest award for which they qualify and will receive official notification of their award shortly after acceptance to Carson-Newman.
Merit-Based Scholarships will be automatically renewed for the recipient’s applicable sophomore, junior, or senior year(s) at the college, provided grade point average and progress toward degree requirements are met.
