Hampton University is pleased to recognize outstanding
academic achievement by offering a variety of scholarships to
first-time freshmen. The selection process is extremely competitive
and students who submit completed admission application packets by
the Early Action deadline (November 1) are automatically considered
for merit awards. (A scholarship application form is not required for
consideration of an award.) Scholarships are awarded on a competitive
basis and subject to the availability of funds. Consideration of
awards is granted, not guaranteed to students who meet minimum
eligibility requirements. The initial review process for scholarships
begins in December. Official scholarship offers are communicated to
the recipient via written correspondence only.
Scholarship award amounts range from $1,000 -$20,000 per academic year,
and are based upon the cumulative academic grade point average and
standardized test scores. Merit based scholarships awarded to entering
freshmen are renewable for three years beyond the first year.
The total financial package (all grants, scholarships, loans
and other assistance, regardless of source, must not exceed the
direct cost (tuition, fees, room and board) of education at the
University for one academic year. In such cases, the scholarship
award will be reduced appropriately. All scholarship recipients are
required to complete the (FAFSA) Free Application for Federal Student
Aid) application and apply for financial aid each academic year. For
specific information on need-based aid contact the Office of Student
Financial Aid at Hampton University, Hampton, Virginia 23668.
Students awarded scholarships must accept or reject the awards within
the specified time allocated at the time of the offer. Failure to
adhere to required response time will result in an automatic
cancellation of the scholarship offer.
The University reserves the right to change the
requirements, and award amounts of scholarships without prior
