High School Seniors: Apply to Scholars Weekend to compete for full or partial scholarships - Applications due Dec. 11th

Scholars Weekend

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 Scholars Weekend competition, where twenty-five students will be invited to compete for five full-tuition scholarships and several partial scholarships.  These are the largest scholarship awards available to incoming Regent students.

If you are invited, you and a parent or guardian will be our guests here on campus in Virginia Beach, Virginia. You will have the opportunity to experience our academic programs, check out our community life and meet our expert faculty. Accommodations will be provided for you and your guest at our well-renowned hotel on campus, the Founders Inn Resort and Spa.

In order to participate in Scholars Weekend, you must be considered a high school senior and have been accepted for admission for the Fall semester. 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, resume and essay.

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.
