Muhlenberg Merit Scholarships

Scholarship Description
In an effort to recognize and reward outstanding academic achievement, Muhlenberg College has established a variety of Merit Scholarships. These Merit awards range in value from $1,000 to $15,000 and are renewable for all four years at Muhlenberg based on academic performance (3.0 GPA by the end of the sophomore year) and good campus citizenship. Although some of the students who receive Muhlenberg merit awards demonstrate financial need, merit awards at Muhlenberg are offered solely on the basis of academic and extracurricular achievement in high school and promise for excellent scholarship and extra curricular contribution on the college level. HOW DO I QUALIFY FOR A MERIT AWARD? All students who file a complete application for freshman admission are considered for merit awards. In recent years, in an applicant pool that numbers over 4,700, between 800 and 900 students typically demonstrate the qualifications to receive serious consideration for a merit award. After a preliminary screening of all applications, these especially well qualified students move into a "second round" of very serious consideration and evaluation. In a typical year, Muhlenberg will ultimately offer over 400 merit awards-some as part of a need based financial aid package, some to students who either have not applied for financial aid or who have not demonstrated financial need. Approximately 150 new students enroll at Muhlenberg each year with some kind of merit award from the College. In recent years, students receiving merit award from Muhlenberg typically have ranked in the top 10% of their high school classes, taken a very strong junior and seniors course schedule, earned over 1300 combined on the SAT-I, and made outstanding extracurricular contributions to their school or community. While Muhlenberg does not require that the SAT or ACT be submitted for admission, students wishing to be considered for merit awards or honors program must submit SAT or ACT scores. Because of the strength of our applicant pool, the competition for Muhlenberg Merit Scholarships is clearly quite rigorous. Strong numbers, by themselves, do not insure a merit award. Muhlenberg's merit selection process is aimed at considering the whole human being within the context of strong academic achievement. For that reason, extracurricular accomplishments, the strength of the college essay, and teacher and counselor recommendations are weighed heavily in making distinctions between and among strong merit candidates. Demonstrated interest in Muhlenberg is also a factor in merit selections-and a campus interview is the best way to demonstrate serious interest, as well as give an admissions officer the opportunity to get to know you well enough to act as an advocate for you in the merit selection process.
