Academic Achievement Award

General Information
Academic Achievement Awards are merit scholarships awarded by the Office of Undergraduate Admission to incoming freshmen applicants.

The scholarship is renewable for four years (five years for Architecture students) provided the student maintains a 2.700 cumulative grade point average and continuous enrollment in a full-time undergraduate division (enrolled for at least 12 credit hours).

If a Academic Achievement Award recipient receives a Faculty-Staff Tuition Waiver, a Reserve Office Training Corps (ROTC) scholarship, and/or any other Tulane Merit Scholarship, the Academic Achievement Award will be cancelled in lieu of the other funding. The exceptions to this policy are for receipt of a Valedictorian Scholarship, a National Merit Scholarship and/or Tulane Need-Based Scholarship, which may be received in addition to the Academic Achievement Award.

The funding for the Academic Achievement Award, as well as for many of Tulane's scholarships, is made possible through the generosity of alumni and friends, and recipients may be requested to acknowledge the donor with a brief thank-you letter.

Application Procedure
Students must submit an application for admission to the Office of Undergraduate Admission by November 1 for Early Action or January 15 for Regular Decision to be considered for this scholarship. Scholarship recipients are notified when they receive their acceptance for admission.

General Renewal Conditions
Please see details on the merit scholarship renewal criteria page.
