 Scholarship Opportunities:

Academic Merit Scholarship

An academic merit scholarship is based on your application for admission and takes into account your GPA (grade point average), test scores (SAT or ACT) and performance in the application process. All first-year and transfer students have an opportunity to earn an academic merit scholarship, as well as have the opportunity to audition or interview for additional performance or affinity scholarships. One additional performance or affinity scholarship may be combined with a merit scholarship. 

To be eligible for scholarships complete the following as soon as possible prior to the enrollment semester.

  1. Complete an E&H application, send your test score (either SAT code: 5185 or ACT code: 4350) and high school transcript to Emory & Henry College.
  2. Complete the FAFSA, and use E&H FAFSA code #003709
