ATHENS, Ohio (Jan. 22, 2007) -- Ohio University Zanesville offers a variety of freshman scholarships to high school seniors. For those applying for scholarships for the 2007-2008 academic year, the guidelines for applying have become more advantageous.
In order to be eligible for one of the scholarship awards, students must achieve minimum grades and test scores. Previously, scholarship award recipients were selected based on grade point average and ACT or SAT test scores. Now students who meet a minimum cumulative grade point average or who obtain a minimum ACT or SAT score will be eligible for the scholarship awards.
To be considered for a full tuition scholarship applicants must have a minimum 3.6 GPA or must score at least a 25 ACT and/or 1440 SAT score. The applicant must also complete an essay detailing how their involvement in extracurricular activities, both in and out of high school, has affected your growth and development as a leader.
In addition to the full tuition scholarships, students may apply for half tuition awards if they have a minimum GPA of 3.4 or a minimum 23 ACT and/or 1070 SAT test score. A third option for financial assistance is the $1,000 award where students with a minimum GPA of 3.2 or minimum 21 ACT and/or 990 SAT are eligible.
Students applying for scholarships must submit their completed admission application, $20 non-refundable application fee, official high school transcripts mailed directly from the high school to the Office of Student Services, official ACT/SAT scores submitted directly to the Office of Student Services, completed Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and a completed scholarship essay before the March 2, deadline.
