The envelope must be postmarked by 5pm January 22, 2019 at the latest for your application to receive consideration. Students will be sent a confirmation email once the application is received and found to be complete.
Finalists will be selected based on the application and essay and invited to participate in an on-campus interview event on February 2, 2019. Finalists must be physically present for the interview portion. Finalists will be notified no later than January 28, 2019. Winners will be notified by the end of February 2019.
Note: Full-tuition scholarship winners will forfeit the original merit scholarship offer made to them at the time of admission. Students who compete but are not selected to receive a full-tuition award may be selected to receive a small increase in their original scholarship offer.
Students who are dependents of University or UPMC employees are welcome to compete for the scholarship. In the event that a student with a tuition benefit is selected to receive the Full-Tuition Scholarship, the family would have to choose one or the other. The student cannot receive the Full-Tuition Scholarship AND use the tuition benefit as both cover tuition costs and are not applicable to other charges (room, board, fees).
