Academic Excellence Scholarship

Are you an incoming first-year student or transfer student with:

  • Demonstrated academic success and potential?
  • A spirit of creativity?
  • Significant involvement and leadership in your school or community?
  • Desire to make a significant positive impact on the Appalachian campus?

If so, you could receive an Academic Excellence Scholarship

Academic Excellence Scholarship recipients can pursue any major offered at Appalachian. Scholarships may be a one-time award for your first year or, in some cases, renewable for up to a total of four consecutive years. Renewable scholarships require students to maintain a 3.0 cumulative GPA each year.

To Apply

Complete your application for admission before November 1 and follow the scholarship application steps.

An admissions committee will review the initial scholarship application, essays and recommendation letters to select recipients for the Academic Excellence Scholarship.
