Merit Scholarships 2021-2022

Merit Scholarships for First-Year Students

Moravian College awards scholarships to incoming first-year students based on their academic performance in high school and demonstrated involvement in school and community activities. Students are automatically considered for a scholarship upon the review of their application for admission. Academic scholarships can range between $18,000-$28,000 and are awarded regardless of financial need. These scholarships are renewable at the same amount each year, provided students maintain continuous, full-time enrollment and satisfactory academic progress. Presidential scholars must also maintain a 3.0 cumulative GPA.
