AFAS Merit Scholarship
The Society awards ten $5,000 merit-based scholarships to incoming freshman who have completed both phases of the 2013-2014 General Henry H. Arnold Education Grant application, and therefore, have already been reviewed for eligibility and had their Grade Point Average (GPA) verified. These scholarship candidates, regardless of whether or not they receive the need-based Arnold Grant, will be directly contacted by AFAS in May.
Selection is based on cumulative GPA, SAT/ACT scores, transcripts, extracurricular activities/volunteer/work résumé, and an essay on a specified topic. Winners will be announced in July, with funds disbursed directly to the universities/colleges in early August.
Again, only incoming freshman who complete the Arnold Grant preliminary application, Family Financial Data Form and GPA verification will be considered for the Merit Scholarship.
