Emory University Scholarship Programs is now open for application from eligible applicants. Emory University offers partial to full merit-based scholarships as part of the Emory University Scholar Programs. Scholar programs are more than just merit scholarships. They empower students through resources and support to reach their full potential and make an impact on the university, Atlanta, and the world beyond.
Emory University Scholarship Programs
Scholarships are renewable for a total of eight regular academic year semesters of undergraduate study, provided students maintain high standards of personal and academic excellence and meet semester and annual requirements of their program (details provided upon acceptance).
Selection Process For Emory University Scholars Programs
The selection for merit-based scholar programs is administered by the Office of Admission in partnership with esteemed faculty.
Roughly 8,000-10,000 students apply to be Scholars each year. Out of that, 175–200 students are selected as Scholar Finalists. Finalists are required to attend an on-campus Scholars Finalists Visit held in the spring. Finalists are brought to campus at no expense to the student.
Taking place over several days, the visit includes activities and interviews designed to help finalists become better acquainted with Emory University and the distinct opportunities available for them here.
Applicants who are not selected as finalists for a program are still fully reviewed for admission under their selected application plan and will also automatically be considered for other smaller merit-based scholarships.
The Scholar selection process is completely separate from the financial aid process. When a student is eligible for both merit scholarships and financial aid, merit scholarships are awarded first. Students who applied for financial aid may also be eligible for need-based grants and loans if there is remaining need beyond the merit scholarship award.
Finalists will only be invited to attend one specific program: Emory Scholars, Oxford Scholars, or Goizueta Scholars.

Emory Scholars Applicant FAQS
If I want to apply early decision 1 and for the Scholar Programs, what is the deadline?
Students applying Early Decision I can apply for the scholar programs but need to meet the November 1 deadline. If your ability to enroll depends on receiving a specific amount of merit scholarships or need-based financial aid, we strongly encourage you to apply Regular Decision.
Scholar program awards are not finalized until early April, after the deposit deadlines for Early Decision I and Early Decision II.
When will I know if I’m a finalist?
Applicants are notified by March 1 if they have been selected as a finalist in one of the three programs (Emory Woodruff Scholars, Oxford Woodruff Scholars, or Goizueta Scholars). Students not selected as finalists will continue to be considered for admission under the decision plan they selected as well as for smaller merit-based scholarships.
Please know that not being selected as a scholar program finalist has no bearing on your overall admissibility to the university. Every year, many great students who are not finalists are admitted to the university and become active in the student community.
If I am not selected as a finalist, can I be considered for other merit-based scholarships?
Yes. There are a limited number of smaller merit-based scholarships beyond the scholar programs. You do not need to submit any additional materials to be considered.
As a dual Emory College/Oxford College Applicant, Can I Be Selected As A Finalist For One College’s Scholar Program and Gain Admission To The Other College?
Yes. A student may be selected as a finalist for the Emory Scholars Program and also be admitted to Oxford College or vice versa.
