Paul Tulane Awards are merit-based scholarships offered to incoming first-time freshmen applicants by the Office of Undergraduate Admission. The scholarships cover full tuition (plus mandatory fees for those initially enrolling at Tulane in the fall of 2014) and are renewable for four years (five years for students pursuing the five-year accredited professional program track in Architecture) provided the student maintains a 3.00 cumulative grade point average and continuous enrollment in a full-time undergraduate division.
Typical scholarship recipients rank in the top 5 percent of the class, have a rigorous academic program with honors and advanced placement courses, and have an outstanding record of extracurricular activities and score near the top of the range in a college admission test.
Students may not receive a Paul Tulane Award in combination with any other Tulane merit scholarship, ROTC scholarship, Faculty-Staff Tuition Waiver or Tuition Exchange Scholarship. Students may combine the award with a partial athletic scholarship. Students offered a Paul Tulane Award may qualify for need-based aid. Students guilty of violations of the Code of Student Conduct or Code of Academic Conduct will forfeit all remaining portions of the Paul Tulane Award that they have been offered.
In order to be eligible for the Paul Tulane Award, you must first submit your application for admission and all supporting documents by the Early Action/Single Choice Early Action deadline of November 15. Submit the Paul Tulane Award application by December 15. Your Paul Tulane Award decision will be made on a rolling basis by the Admission Office.
The Paul Tulane Award application may be found on the Office of Undergraduate Admission website, at http://admission.tulane.edu/aid/merit.php.
General Renewal Conditions
The scholarships are guaranteed to match the full-time tuition (and mandatory fees for recipients initially enrolling at Tulane in the fall of 2014) cost each year provided the student maintains a 3.00 cumulative grade point average and continuous enrollment in a full-time undergraduate division.
Seniors in their final semester who enroll less than full-time may still receive the scholarship, but the amount will be reduced by the amount of the tuition and mandatory fee reduction.
Other students who enroll in or drop to less than full-time in the fall semester will have their Paul Tulane Scholarship reduced by their tuition and mandatory fee reduction, if any. They will be allowed to retain their Paul Tulane Scholarship for the spring semester provided they enroll full-time, but may lose eligibility for all following years since the scholarship guidelines require that students maintain continuous full-time enrollment. Students who enroll in or drop to less than full-time in the spring semester will have their Paul Tulane Scholarship reduced by their tuition and mandatory fee reduction, if any, but may lose eligibility for the scholarship in future semesters.
Students who take an approved leave of absence may regain their scholarship upon their return provided they continue to meet all academic and enrollment conditions and submit documentation verifying the approved leave of absence. Acceptable documentation is either a copy of their college's approved leave of absence form or a letter from their academic dean's office confirming the terms and length of the student's approved leave of absence.
