Other Cedarville Scholarship and Grant Opportunities for New Students:

Academic Program Scholarships are associated with select academic programs (Pharmacy, Music, Worship, ROTC, and others). These are awarded by faculty within each department.

Athletic Scholarships are awarded to top-performing athletes on an individual basis by the coaches.

Donor-Funded Scholarships. Scholarship requirements vary according to each donor's request. Award selection is made by the Executive Director of Financial Aid and/or a scholarship committee. Donor-funded scholarships may underwrite the funding of a student's existing academic or need-based aid or, in some cases, are awarded in addition to other institutional aid, depending on the wishes of the donor. Completion of the FAFSA is required.

Tuition Remission Scholarships: Cedarville University offers two Tuition Remission programs for full-time faculty, staff, and administrators of both Cedarville University and other Christian universities.

Transfer Student Aid is awarded to transfer students based on various awarding criteria.

A student must be enrolled full-time to receive institutional aid. 12 hours is considered full-time for undergraduates. Enrolling in less than 12 hours will result in institutional aid being fully rescinded.
