CU Announces New Grants and Updated Scholarship for Prospective Students

by Public Relations Office

Cedarville, Ohio - Cedarville University`s board of trustees recently approved the addition of two new grants and an updated scholarship to be made available to new students in 2004. The new grants are renewable, need-based grants which range from $500 to $2,000 for students with a cumulative GPA of 2.5 or higher. The Ministry Grant will be offered to students whose parents are involved in vocational ministries, while the Legacy Grant applies to those students whose parents or siblings are alumni or whose siblings are currently enrolled at Cedarville University. An update to the Faculty Scholarship allows for possible renewals in subsequent academic terms. The scholarship ranges from $1,000 to $2,200 each academic year. To renew the scholarship, a student must maintain a Cedarville GPA of 3.25. Director of Financial Aid Fred Merritt commented, "The Faculty Scholarship has been one of the foundational pillars of our academic scholarship program for years. In making this prestigious academic scholarship renewable, we have quadrupled its value."
