Tigerville, SC (October 18, 2022) Prospective students will compete for scholarships at North Greenville University’s invitation-only Scholars Weekend, set for Nov. 18-19 at the Tigerville Campus.

During the weekend, students who are selected will be interviewed by distinguished faculty, staff, alumni, and board members; participate in group discussions and other academic experiences; tour campus and attend dinner with NGU President Dr. Gene C. Fant, Jr.  

“Students that are chosen have indicated that they are top-notch individuals,” NGU Director for Traditional Admissions Katie Lynn Marshall said. “They’re not chosen because of a single gift or accomplishment, or because they made straight ‘As’ in high school. They’re chosen because we have seen potential in them. They’re already making a difference and doing excellent things with their lives, and we want to partner with them and give them the opportunity to continue down that path.”

Those in attendance will compete for the Trustee Scholarship, the NGU Fellows Scholarship, and the Lifeshape Scholarship.

To be considered for the Trustee Scholarship, candidates must have an overall grade point average of 3.8, and a minimum combined SAT score of 1300 on the critical reading and math portions, an ACT composite score of 28, or an 86 on the CLT. The scholarship will cover $17,000 of tuition for resident students and $8,500 of tuition for commuting students. The scholarship is renewable for four years to students who maintain a grade point average of at least a 3.0 at the end of each academic year.

South Carolina residents who meet the requirements for the Palmetto Fellows Scholarship are considered for the NGU Fellows Scholarship. Eligible candidates are identified by the South Carolina Commission on Higher Education. This scholarship will cover the full cost of tuition, room, and board. This scholarship will be comprised of federal, state, and institutional aid. The cost of books and fees will be the responsibility of the recipient. The NGU Fellows Scholarship is renewable for four years to students who maintain the requirements set forth by the Commission on Higher Education.

The Lifeshape Scholarship is a cohort-based opportunity that facilitates covering tuition, housing, meals, course materials from Slingshot, and required fees—a true full-ride. Open to all areas of study, but prioritized for student’s pursuing degrees in English, political science, history, languages, and church ministry-related programs. It’s one more way NGU partners with students to keep average student debt well below the national average.

“Students that receive these scholarships from North Greenville—we know where they’re going. We know they’re going to impact the world around them,” said Cory Truax, Associate Director for Enrollment Operations at NGU. “They’re going to the courtroom to argue for justice. They’re going to the board room to make big decisions. They’re going to the operating room to heal people. They’re going to classrooms to shape the next generation. We want those students to be shaped by the values we have here at North Greenville.”
