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 and Tuition Exchange Opportunities: Cedarville University offers tuition benefits to its full-time faculty, staff, and administrators and participates in the Tuition Exchange program sponsored by the Council of Independent Colleges.
Outside Scholarships that Cedarville students have obtained throughout the years are listed for students to research and apply for on their own.
FASTWeb is recommended by Cedarville as an online resource to find outside scholarships for additional aid.
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 Enrolling in less than 12 hours will result in institutional aid being fully rescinded.
