Your Chance to Compete for Full Tuition Scholarships
You've studied hard and excelled in high school. Now's the time to plan your future. Regent University College of Arts and Sciences is proud to announce the eighth annual Scholars Weekend competition, February 8 - 9, 2014.
Twenty-five students will be invited to compete for one of several full-tuition scholarships* as well as check out our academic programs, campus and faculty by being our guest here on-campus for an entire weekend. You and your parent or guardian will enjoy staying at the well-renowned hotel on campus, The Founders Inn and Spa.
In order to participate in Scholars Weekend, you must be considered a high school senior as of September 1, 2012 and have been accepted for admission for Fall 2014 by January 6, 2014. While admissions acceptance is required in order to participate in Scholars Weekend, it does not obligate the applicant to attend Regent University. The Scholars Weekend competition application is a separate application process, which includes evaluating your ACT or SAT score, official high school transcripts, GPA, and resume. This scholarship application is due by January 6, 2014.
Apply today to secure your place. While we encourage all high school students to apply, only 25 of the best qualified applicants will be invited to this exclusive event.
