Wanted: Incoming Freshmen to Apply for Chancellor’s Academic Scholarship
Wanted: future Elizabeth City State University scholars to apply for the Chancellor’s Academic Scholarship. Incoming freshmen should apply.
Yes, it’s time for incoming freshmen to apply for the Chancellor’s Academic Scholarship and that means, based upon the merits of the applicants, five students could be awarded a fully funded, four-year scholarship. The scholarship covers full tuition, student fees, university housing, meals, and textbooks.
The scholarship was developed to provide this opportunity to students who are exceptional scholars, versatile, and well-rounded people. The recipients of this award will represent the core values of ECSU through their commitment to excellence, accountability, diversity, and the ECSU motto: “To Live is to Learn.”
For those students who are awarded this scholarship, an annual renewal is contingent on maintaining a 3.5 cumulative GPA, enrolling full time each semester and earn a minimum of 30 credit hours for each academic year, and maintaining a membership and active participation in the ECSU Honors Program.
Candidates for the Chancellor’s Academic Scholarship will respond to application questions, along with a standard application for freshman admission. To be eligible for this scholarship, applicants must meet the following criteria:
- Be a competitive application for admission as a freshman in the fall semester, enrolling into a baccalaureate program at ECSU;
- Be on course to graduate high school in the spring semester prior to college admission;
- Be a United States citizen or permanent resident;
- Have a minimum of 3.5 or higher unweighted cumulative GPA;
- Have a minimum score of 1260 SAT, or 26 ACT.
