All Arcadia merit scholarships are automatically renewable from year to year provided the student remains full-time and in good academic standing according to University guidelines.

Merit scholarships apply toward tuition costs only. If another scholarship, award or funding from any outside entity/organization will cover all or part of a student’s tuition costs, the merit scholarship will be replaced or reduced. For more information, email the Financial Aid Office at [email protected].

These scholarships and grants are made possible through the generous gifts of alumni, parents, faculty, staff and friends of Arcadia University.
