Description:  Emory UniversityEmory College, Oxford College, and the Goizueta Business School offer merit-based scholarships to incoming first-year students through the Emory University Scholars Program. This highly selective program not only recognizes and provides financial awards to exceptional students with a history of academic excellence and outstanding extracurricular engagement, but also challenges those students to utilize their talents to impact the Emory community, Atlanta, and the world. Selection into the Emory University Scholars Program comes with the expectation that each Scholar will invest energy in active engagement with the community of Scholars and use the resources and support provided by the Program to shape the future of the University. Emory University Scholars are “intellectually carbonated” individuals, leaders among their peers, and “spark plugs” in their communities. They are forward-thinkers who stretch the boundaries of intellectual inquiry, artists with distinctive talents and creativity and difference-makers that act as catalysts for positive change. Emory University actively seeks these budding visionaries to infuse energy into the Emory, Oxford, and Goizueta communities as they pursue their passions. The Emory University Scholars Program is committed to building a holistic community of Scholars and is uniquely designed to enrich each student’s personal academic experience while intentionally impacting community at Emory and beyond.

Number of award(s): Not Known

Duration of award(s): The studentships are renewable for up to 8 semesters provided students maintain high standards of personal and academic excellence.
