Centenary College has a new Presidential Scholars Program designed to attract students who have demonstrated strong academic credentials during their high school career. Interested applicants must meet the minimum criteria of having a 3.4 cumulative high school grade point average, as well as an SAT score of 1100 or equivalent ACT score. The new Presidential Scholars Program provides students who are selected with a 75 percent discounted rate of tuition for four years. This would equal an out-of-pocket tuition cost of less than $7,500 the first year. Those who are chosen must maintain certain academic standards to be eligible for this benefit each year.
The program provides leadership opportunities on campus to those who receive the scholarship. Students will participate in a Junior Year Academic Challenge in which they will be paired with a faculty member to conduct independent research.
Those who are interested in being considered for the Presidential Scholars Program must complete admissions applications by Jan. 15.
