Each year, Hood College awards more than $6 million in merit-based scholarships, including scholarships for first-year students entering from high school as well as for students transferring from other colleges. Students admitted to Hood are automatically considered for most merit scholarships, the majority of which are renewable for up to four years (although some require a minimum G.P.A. for their renewal). Overall academic performance, specific academic achievements, leadership and participation in school and community activities are important factors in awarding scholarships to both first-year and transfer students.
Students must be accepted to Hood College to be considered for this award.
