As a component of the Emory University Scholar Programs, partial to full merit-based scholarships are available.
Scholar programs go beyond merit-based scholarships. They give students the tools and encouragement they need to fulfill their potential and have an effect on the university, Atlanta, and the wider globe.
In Atlanta, Georgia, there is a private research university called Emory University. The second oldest private university in Georgia, Emory was founded by the Methodist Episcopal Church in 1836 as “Emory College” and named after Methodist bishop John Emory (after Mercer University, founded in 1833).
Emory College of Arts and Sciences, Oxford College, Goizueta Business School, Laney Graduate School, School of Law, School of Medicine, Nell Hodgson Woodruff School of Nursing, Rollins School of Public Health, and Candler School of Theology are the nine academic divisions that makeup Emory University.
The following group of people is eligible for the scholarship:
Any student may be given consideration for the scholar programs, regardless of citizenship.
Nominations from high school guidance counselors are not required in order to be considered.
Students must be submitting an application for one of Emory University’s three admission periods.

Method of Selection
The Office of Admission, in collaboration with outstanding professors, manages the selection for merit-based scholar programs.
Each year, anywhere between 8,000 and 10,000 students apply to be Scholars.175-200 students are chosen as Scholar Finalists.
Finalists must attend a Scholars Finalists Visit hosted on campus in the spring.
Finalists are invited to campus without charging the student. The visit, which spans several days, includes activities and interviews made to familiarize finalists with Emory University and the unique opportunities accessible to them there.
Those who are not chosen as program finalists are nevertheless thoroughly examined for admission in accordance with the application strategy they have chosen, and they are also automatically considered for additional minor merit-based awards.
Financial aid selection is carried out independently of Scholar selection.
Merit scholarships are given out first when a student qualifies for both financial aid and scholarships.
If there is an unmet need after the merit scholarship award, students who applied for financial help may also qualify for need-based grants and loans.
