Renaissance Scholars Program: Applications Now Due February 8
You may be eligible for a scholarship from the Renaissance Scholars Program if you are a freshman or sophomore with a 3.0GPA.
Renaissance is a partner of ECSU, and it provides scholarships at historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) for high-achieving, full-time students who have a significant financial need. You must be the first person in your family to earn a bachelor’s degree to be eligible to apply.
- The Renaissance scholarship provides up to $4,000 a year towards tuition and fees, housing, books, and supplies. The award depends on each student’s individual financial need.
- Your scholarship award is renewable up to four years if you maintain at least a 3.0 GPA, have financial need, and are enrolled full-time.
The deadline to apply has been extended to February 8. (Renaissance will be offering a second round of scholarships, and that due date is May 1.)
Renaissance is looking for students who demonstrate strength of character and a strong work ethic. These qualities can be demonstrated through participation in volunteering, membership in clubs/community organizations, paid/unpaid work, or family responsibilities. U.S. citizenship is not a requirement to be eligible for this scholarship.
