Presidential Scholarship Competition

  • Presidential Scholarship

    The Presidential Scholarship is the most prestigious of the McPherson College scholarships and can be up to $6,000 per year. This award is in addition to the Merit Scholarship based on your GPA score. This scholarship is awarded to all who qualify for a Presidential Scholarship Competition Day and is based on the following: round table discussion, group activity, personal interviews and high school academic record.

Combined Presidential plus Merit scholarships range from $12,000 to $22,000 per year for first-time freshmen and are renewed annually for four years provided satisfactory academic progress is maintained.

One full-tuition scholarship is awarded after all of the scholarship days are completed.
