You can get started today by following this simple process:
To be eligible for academic scholarship consideration, students should have a minimum 3.0 GPA on college preparatory subjects and a “super score” of 25 on the ACT or 1140 on the SAT. Hendrix academic scholarships range from $4,000 per year to full tuition, room, board, and fees.
The following criteria are considered in the awarding of academic scholarships: academic performance in college preparatory classes; standardized test scores; leadership abilities; extracurricular and co-curricular activities; and recommendations. Priority consideration for academic scholarships is given to those students who apply for admission prior to November 15 of their senior year.
Odyssey Honors Awards are awarded based on a student’s accomplishments and activities during high school. Hendrix also offers Performing and Fine Arts Scholarships in art, music, and theatre arts and dance; Miller Center Service Scholarships; Leadership Scholarships; and UMYF Scholarships for selected participants who are leaders in the United Methodist Church.
Yes. Hendrix strongly encourages students to apply for need-based financial aid by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Hendrix will review the FAFSA information the government returns to the college and will then construct a financial aid package.
Every member of the 2011 entering class received financial assistance, and the average award – including federal, state, institutional, and private funds – was $27,622. The priority deadline for submitting the FAFSA is February 15
