Merit Scholarships for First-Year Students

Moravian University awards admissions scholarships to incoming first-year undergraduate students. Students are automatically considered for a scholarship upon the review of their application for admission. Generally scholarships can range between $25,000 to $30,000 and are awarded regardless of financial need. These scholarships are renewable at the same amount each year for up to five years of payment (or completion of the undergraduate degree, whichever comes first); provided students maintain continuous, full-time enrollment and satisfactory academic progress.

Some other merit scholarship opportunities at Moravian University include:

  • The Legacy Award – Awarded to incoming full-time undergraduate students whose sibling, parent, grandparent, and/or great-grandparent is currently attending or has graduated from Moravian University.  This includes alumni of all graduate programs and the Moravian Theological Seminary.  Eligible recipients receive $2,000 annually. 
  • The Moravian Church Scholarship – Awarded to incoming full-time undergraduate students who are official documented members of a Moravian Church congregation. Eligible recipients receive up to $2,000 annually. A letter from the pastor of the congregation must accompany the application for admission. A student may retain their Moravian Church Scholarship for up to five years of full-time undergraduate enrollment. 
  • Endowed and Annual Giving Scholarships – Alumni and friends of Moravian University donate millions of dollars every year to the many scholarship funds established to support our students. Incoming first-year students are encouraged to file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as soon as possible to maximize funding consideration.
