COPPIN MERIT SCHOLARSHIP and HONORS SCHOLARSHIPS

*For incoming students, a separate scholarship application is not necessary, students who are admitted into Cheyney University will be automatically considered for these awards.  Awards are limited and made on a competitive, rolling basis. Awarded students will receive a letter outlining the terms of their award.

Scholarships are renewable provided students enroll full-time with 15 credit hours, make continuous progress towards the degree, and maintain a minimum GPA of a 3.0 (each term and cumulative).  Students will be suspended from the scholarship program if they do not uphold these obligations.

Scholarships are packaged by Financial Aid after grant aid, and before loans.  Merit scholarships may be reduced if the total funding is not needed by the student, and such funds do not result in a refund to students.

This program will be implemented for the spring of 2014, and will be a long-standing scholarship program at Cheyney University, subject to revision based on assessment.
