Rochester Merit Awards

The University of Rochester awards merit-based scholarships to freshman and transfer students who demonstrate outstanding academic achievement and potential, regardless of financial circumstances. Merit scholarship amounts range from $2,000 per year to full-tuition.

All admitted undergraduate applicants to the College are considered for merit scholarships. Merit scholarships are awarded to students during the admission process and renewed annually if satisfactory academic performance is maintained. Students are eligible to receive only one scholarship. Students who receive annual scholarships of $15,000 more have a GPA requirement of 3.0.

If at least one of your parents is an employee of the University of Rochester, you may be eligible for dependent child tuition benefits. Since both the benefit and scholarship funds can help with the costs of tuition only, you may be eligible to receive a combination of tuition benefit and scholarship funds that can approach or match, not exceed the cost of tuition. It is our policy that tuition benefits must be applied to your bill before merit scholarships. University of Rochester tuition benefits and scholarship funds can not be applied to non-tuition related expenses, e.g. housing and dining services.
