Merit Scholarships

Merit Awards for Freshman and Transfers

Merit scholarships and grants reward students for their academic success before attending Jefferson (Philadelphia University + Thomas Jefferson University). Without regard to your financial need, these scholarships are awarded to new freshmen based on cumulative high school GPA and SAT or ACT scores. Freshmen scholarships range from $4,000 to $19,000 and are renewable for up to four years as a full-time student as long as your academic progress is satisfactory.

Transfer students can also receive merit awards on the basis of all previous college level work. Transfer awards range from $5,000 to $12,000 per year. All scholarships are renewable each year of full-time attendance provided you meet GPA requirements associated with the merit awards.
