Presidential Scholarship

Boston University values academic excellence and hard work. Each year, the Board of Admissions awards the Presidential Scholarship to approximately five percent of our incoming freshmen who demonstrate exceptional academic achievement. In addition to being among our most academically talented students, Presidential Scholars demonstrate excellence beyond the classroom and are leaders in their schools and communities. This $20,000 tuition scholarship is renewable for up to four years of undergraduate study at BU.

No additional essays or application forms are required. However, the award process is very competitive, and students must submit their application for admission by December 1.
