ScIP Award Scale for 2016-2017 Recipients

  • We have received feedback from students and parents that the current ScIP awarding scale is confusing. We heard you!

    Starting this year, you may see communications about changes to the ScIP grant. All first time recipients of the ScIP grant will now receive a grant for $1,000. Don't worry!

    If you received the ScIP grant in 2016-2017 and are awarded again in 2017-18, these changes will not apply to you.

    Students who received the ScIP grant in 2016-17 and want to be reviewed for eligibility to receive the grant for the 2017-18 academic year, must complete the following steps:

    1. Submit your FAFSA by April 15th
    2. Update your 2017-2018 enrollment and anticipated major in your Student Account by June 30th
    3. Submit your academic records from the 2016-2017 school year by June 30th ScIP-Application Details

    Students who received a ScIP for 2016-2017 and demonstrate financial need, have an eligible major and are awarded a ScIP grant again for the 2017-2018 academic year will have their award amount based on their un-weighted GPA using this scale:

    GPA Range Need Base Merit Supplement Total Award
    3.75 - 4.0 $700 $1,500 $2,200
    3.50 - 3.74 $700 $1,200 $1,900
    3.25 - 3.49 $700 $900 $1,600
    3.00 - 3.24 $700 $600 $1,300
    2.75 - 2.99 $700 $300 $1,000
    2.50 - 2.74 $700 $0 $700
    Less than 2.50 $0 $0 $0
