Transfer Student Scholarships

Hood College's scholarship program recognizes the academic achievement of transfer students.  All transfer students applying for admission to Hood College as a full-time student will be considered for these scholarships.  No special application is required.  Students will be informed of their eligibility through the admission application process.

The dollar amount of these merit scholarships is based on a percent of tuition (not including fees, room or board) rather than a set dollar amount. The actual dollar amount of these scholarships will change annually based upon the tuition. For more information on the scholarship qualifications, please contact the Office of Admission.

Transfer Scholarships:

Leader’s Scholarship   Forty percent of tuition  $14,960 (Based on 2017-2018 tuition)
Trailblazer Scholarship    One-third of tuition $12,467 (Based on 2017-2018 tuition)
Recognition Award   One-quarter of tuition  $9,350 (Based on 2017-2018 tuition)

Maintenance/Renewal: Scholarships are awarded to new transfer students who enroll in full-time studies and are renewable for the number of semesters indicated in their acceptance letter.  Students must achieve the minimum semester grade-point average, maintain satisfactory academic progress toward their degree and be enrolled full-time. Students whose grade-point average drops below the required level will receive a warning. Two consecutive semesters below the minimum grade point average will result in a reduction to or elimination of the award. Students with reduced or eliminated scholarships may recover the original award amount by achieving the required semester grade point average.
