Whitworth Academic Scholarships for Incoming 2015-16
Transfer Students

The following scholarships are determined at the time a student is accepted to Whitworth University. Transfer scholarships will be awarded to students who have been enrolled full time, who have completed one or more terms at an accredited college or university, and who are working toward their first bachelor's degree. The scholarship amount will be determined from the student's official college transcript; if the student has attended more than one university, Whitworth will calculate a combined cumulative GPA. If the student has completed less than one full term of college work, the scholarship will be determined based on the student's high school cumulative GPA.

Provost's Scholarship: $15,000 with a 3.75 or higher cumulative GPA

Deans' Scholarship: $13,000 with a 3.50-3.74 cumulative GPA

Faculty Scholarship: $11,000 with a 3.25-3.49 cumulative GPA

Pirate Scholarship: $9,000 with a 3.0-3.24 cumulative GPA

Students who enroll at Whitworth full time in 2015-16 will automatically receive the highest scholarship for which they qualify (based on information received in the admissions office by July 15, 2015). These scholarships are available to cover Whitworth tuition costs only. Whitworth will renew the academic scholarship each year a student is enrolled full time and maintains satisfactory academic progress. When students apply for additional financial aid with the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), these scholarships are considered a resource in meeting a student's demonstrated financial need.

In addition to the Whitworth University Transfer Merit Scholarships, entering students may qualify for either the Phi Theta Kappa Scholarship or the All-Washington Academic Team Scholarship.
