I am delighted to share exciting news about scholarships at Gettysburg College.
Starting with next year’s incoming class, students will be able to apply for the Eisenhower Scholarship–designed to recognize outstanding applicants who are positively transforming their communities. The College has a long history of civic engagement with students and alumni making a difference in their communities and around the world.
The Eisenhower Scholarship is Gettysburg College’s most selective scholarship–$160,000 for four years of full-time study ($40,000 per year). It is awarded to top-performing applicants within a most challenging curriculum who have demonstrated a high level of civic engagement locally, nationally, and/or internationally. More information about the Eisenhower Scholarship including application requirements and process is on our website.
Additionally, Gettysburg College recognizes students’ academic achievement in high school by awarding four categories of academic merit scholarships under Early Decision and Regular Decision.
- Abraham Lincoln Scholarship–$32,000 per year
- Presidential Scholarship–$27,000 per year
- David Wills Scholarship –$24,000 per year
- 1832 Founders Scholarship–$15,000 per year
Decisions on merit scholarship recipients are made as part of the admissions process. A separate application is not required. All students, including those who apply test optional, are considered.
I hope that you will share with your students that Gettysburg College accepts self-reported SAT and ACT scores. Please visit our webpage for more information about applying test optional or with self-reported scores.
I wish you and your students a wonderful start to the academic year! As always, please feel free to reach out to me or my staff with questions about Gettysburg College and our application process.
