GW Scholarships and Merit Awards

All applicants are considered for scholarships and merit awards as part of the admissions process. In addition, the scholarship will be part of the financial aid package for students who are eligible for need-based aid..

While students may meet the qualifications for several scholarships or merit awards, only one award can be offered. A GPA of 3.0 (B) on 12 credit hours per semester, in addition to good standing at the university, is recommended for renewal of these awards.

The duration of aid is limited to 10 consecutive semesters of full-time enrollment or the number of credits sufficient to graduate, whichever comes first. 

Please refer to the Office of  Student Financial Assistance website for regulations on scholarships and merit awards.
