Academic/Achievement Scholarships

Students may receive one scholarship from the academic/achievement section.

Academic Scholarships

Academic scholarships are awarded to full-time, degree seeking students attending HLGU’s main campus. Academic scholarships are designed to recognize and reward students for previous academic achievement. Generous scholarship awards are presented based on high school grade point average (GPA) and ACT/SAT scores. Scholarship dollar amounts range from $5,000 to $10,000 annually (up to $20,000 to $40,000 over 4 years). Academic scholarships are renewable for four years (eight semesters) with appropriate HLGU cumulative grade point average (CGPA).

To be eligible, the student must be a senior attending a high school or homeschool within a 50 mile radius of the University, have a GPA of 2.75 or higher, a minimum ACT score of 18, and be in the top half of their graduating class. A personal interview with the Director of Admissions is also required. Residential students are eligible for a $10,000 scholarship annually, and commuter students are eligible for a $6,500 annual scholarship.

Scholarships awarded are limited to 50 per year and are renewable for four years based on an earned 2.5 CGPA. The HLGU Regional High School Scholarship may not be combined with any other institutional scholarship. Click here to apply.
