How Scholarships are Renewed

Scholarship recipients who do not wish to be considered for need-based aid (including the Federal Direct Stafford Loan), do NOT need to submit renewal forms. Merit awards will be renewed automatically, for up to three additional years of undergraduate study, provided that the student:

  • Satisfactorily completes 12 credits each semester
  • Fulfills all other renewal requirements specified for the scholarship, including the minimum grade point average

Non-Renewal of Scholarships

Students who do not qualify for renewal of their merit awards and need financial aid to continue their education at Boston University may apply for and receive need-based aid, if they meet all eligibility criteria. Students who think their merit awards may not be renewed and who need financial aid should apply for need-based aid by the specified deadline.
