Merit scholarships require full-time attendance, except for students in their final semester. Effective Spring 2008, all merit scholarship recipients, including those in their final semester, must be enrolled on a full-time basis in order to receive their scholarship.
Merit scholarships are awarded for up to eight semesters of full-time attendance. Stevens merit scholarships of all types are for tuition only.
If a student receives an additional outside scholarship, the maximum award cannot exceed the cost of tuition (outside scholarship + merit aid cannot exceed tuition for the year).
If you receive an outside award that is equal to full tuition, Stevens' merit award will be cancelled.
Institutional aid (merit scholarships and need based scholarships and grants) are determined by considering factors such as strength of the academic record, standardized test scores, extracurricular activities, and financial need (for need-based grants).
Merit Scholarships are renewable based on a student's annual Satisfactory Academic Progress.
