Additional Scholarship Opportunities
International freshmen students may be eligible for additional scholarships (Academic Program, Athletic, President's Ministry Impact Scholarship and/or Donor-funded)
Athletic Scholarships are awarded to top-performing athletes on an individual basis by the coaches.
President's Ministry Impact Scholarship. 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.
Donor-Funded Scholarships. Donor-funded scholarships allow donors to meet individual student needs or recognize academic achievement through annually funded or endowed named scholarships.
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 Enrolling in less than 12 hours will result in institutional aid being fully rescinded.
