There is a wide variety of merit-based awards for incoming freshman and first time Grand Valley students. Most require high academic achievement and are automatically awarded to applicants based on information provided in the student's admission application. To be considered for these scholarships, the Admissions Office must receive your completed application and all supporting documents by December 31 for fall admission. Documents received after the deadline will not be used for scholarship consideration. Click here to view scholarships for incoming freshmen and transfer scholarships .
