The Citadel Scholarship Program
The Citadel's scholarship program is designed to attract outstanding high school graduates to the college, reward undergraduate academic excellence, and help those worthy students who desire financial assistance to pay for their college education. Annually, The Citadel awards more than 3 million dollars in academic scholarships to entering freshmen and enrolled upperclassmen. More than 25 full academic scholarships* covering catalog costs are awarded to incoming freshmen.
Incoming freshman cadets are automatically considered for merit scholarships based on their standard application for admission; school administrators determine scholarship eligibility and make award decisions upon the information provided on your college application. Prospective/incoming cadets do not complete a separate scholarship application.
*Full Scholarships: some full scholarships do require additional candidate involvement such as writing an essay and participating in an on-campus interview.
Award Notification: the Office of Financial Aid & Scholarships will notify all incoming freshmen about scholarship award decisions by April 30th.
Rising sophomores, juniors, and seniors must complete a separate Citadel scholarship application (below) and return it by February 1st of each year to be considered for Citadel scholarships.
The 2014-2015 Annual Cadet Scholarship Application will be available after January 01, 2014 and must be completed by rising upperclass cadets before February 01, 2014.
