Merit Scholarships 2018-2019

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 $14,000-$27,000 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.

  • The Legacy Grant – Awarded to full-time undergraduate students whose sibling, parent, grandparent, and/or great-grandparent graduated from Moravian College.  This includes alumni of all graduate programs and Moravian Theological Seminary.  Recipients receive $2,000 annually.
  • The Sibling Grant – Awarded to any new full-time undergraduate student enrolling at Moravian College who has a sibling currently enrolled at the college.  Eligible recipients receive up to $2,000 annually.  Students awarded the Legacy Grant cannot also receive a Sibling Grant
  • The Moravian Church Scholarship – Awarded in the amount of $2,000 to incoming students who are official documented members of a Moravian Church congregation. A letter from the pastor of the congregation must accompany the application for admission.
