The merit-based scholarship is renewable through four years, as long as academic, extracurricular and civic performance remains high.

This unique program also includes an enrichment fund of $10,000 per student to be used over four years to pay for outside-of-the-classroom educational experiences such as study abroad, research or unpaid internships.
