Diversity Scholarship

Note: This information is valid for new students entering Cedarville in 2011–12.

As a Christ-centered University, Cedarville values diversity and strives to build a student body that reflects the full range of people groups comprising God’s Kingdom. The University intentionally develops student programming and financial aid policies designed to attract and serve students from an array of ethnic backgrounds.


The Diversity Scholarship is awarded to students who identify themselves as predominantly belonging to a minority ethnic or racial group (i.e. Hispanic or Latino, American or Alaskan Native, Asian, African American, or Pacific Islander).


Ethnicity can be reported to the university in the following ways:

  • The ACT/SAT score report; or
  • The student profile form (completed as a follow-up to the application for admission)


  • $2,000 per year
  • Full-time enrollment required (minimum 12 credit hours per semester at Cedarville)
  • Limited to eight semesters of undergraduate study
  • May be combined with other grants and scholarships
