Undergraduate Admission

Merit Scholarships

All applicants are automatically considered for partial tuition merit scholarships. Tulane also awards several full-tuition, total-cost, service, and Louisiana resident scholarships that require separate applications. 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.

PARTIAL SCHOLARSHIPS
Our partial tuition scholarships, which range from $10,000 to $32,000 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 a given year's applicant pool.

FULL-TUITION SCHOLARSHIPS
These awards seek to recognize superior high school performance, extremely competitive standardized test scores, exceptional community and secondary school involvement, and extraordinary intellectual promise.
