Next year's event will be held in January 2018.
High-achieving high school students are invited to campus annually to compete for one of two
Full-Tuition Presidential Scholarships
These scholarships are valued at $121,000 through the four years of your undergraduate education at Bluffton.
You will receive a $1,000 annual scholarship just for participating in the Presidential Scholarship Competition.
All eligible students are welcome to participate in this competition. Families are welcome to come to campus with you.
How are the winners chosen?
The winners of the scholarship competition are chosen based on three key categories:
- An essay - written and completed on campus the day of the competition
- Overall grade point average
- Standardized test scores
Students with an unavoidable conflict on the scheduled day of the competition will have an alternate option for participating. Contact the office of admissions for details.
