* Transfer students may be eligible for additional scholarships (Athletic, One Campus, Presidential Leadership, and/or program specific)
Athletic Scholarships are awarded to top-performing athletes on an individual basis by the coaches.
One Campus Leadership Scholarship. The One Campus Leadership Scholarship is awarded to students seeking to enhance the Cedarville community through their personal experience and appreciation for ethnic and cultural diversity. In addition to the scholarship award, students will join a select group of aspiring leaders on campus for encouragement and training, leading to priority consideration for leadership opportunities. An application is required.
Presidential Leadership Award. Celebrating Cedarville's strong support for the local church and those who invest their lives in full-time ministry, this scholarship is awarded to selected students whose parent is in full-time ministry and who demonstrate excellent Christian character and leadership abilities. An application is required.
Word of Life Transfer Grant. Transfer students who attend Word of Life Bible Institute may qualify for this grant.
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.
Cedarville University seeks to use institutional funding wisely in order to allow more students to receive funding. There may be instances where a student has scholarships and grants (institutional and outside) that exceed direct University charges. Thus, in cases where a student's total financial aid (gift-based aid) is above direct University charges, Cedarville will reduce other forms of institutional gift-based aid so as not to exceed your bill amount.
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 Enrolling in less than 12 hours will result in institutional aid being fully rescinded.
