Merit Scholarships for Transfer StudentsIf you are transferring from a community college or another university, there are scholarships tailored just for you. These include the Transfer Academic Excellence Scholarship, the Weinberg Regents Scholarship and the Presidents Transfer Scholarship. Departments may have their own scholarships for transfer students as well.
The eligibility requirements for each scholarship vary. Some scholarships require an application and/or an on-campus interview.
The Transfer Academic Excellence Scholarship (TAES) is the most prestigious merit scholarship we offer to transfer students. It covers full tuition for four consecutive semesters.
Students applying for the Fall 2015 semester can now complete the TAES application as part of their transfer application to the university. Students who plan to enroll as transfer students prior to the Fall 2015 semester can complete the TAES application here.
The Office of Student Financial Aid can also provide lots of information about outside sources for merit scholarships.
