All applicants are considered for merit scholarships, ranging from $7,500 to $27,000 per year. Tulane also awards a full-tuition Deans Honors Scholarship, a Community Service Scholarship and various scholarships for Louisiana residents.
Most merit scholarships - various partial tuition scholarships ranging from $7,500 to $27,000 per year - require no special application and are awarded by the admission office based on the strength of the admission application within the context of the given year's applicant pool. The majority of merit scholarships are renewable for 4 years, (or 5 years for architecture students), provided the student maintains good standing with the university, a full-time course load and a designated minimum GPA.
Special application procedures must be followed for those wishing to be considered for the Deans' Honor Scholarship and/or the Community Service Scholarship:
Full Tuition Scholarships:
Tulane awards two separate full tuition scholarships for outstanding students. Both awards are renewable for 4 years, (or 5 years for architecture students), and require additional materials to apply. The Dean's Honor Scholarship requires that an additional creative project be completed and is reviewed by the deans of the five undergraduate schools; approximately 75 are awarded per year. The Paul Tulane Award requires additional writing components and is reviewed by the dean of admission; approximately 50 are awarded per year.
