2021 Full-Tuition Scholarship Competition
** Applications must be in the Admissions Office by 5:00 PM on March 31, 2021.**
Pitt-Greensburg will award 3 full-tuition scholarships to freshmen students beginning their education in Fall 2021. This award will only cover tuition of up to 18 credits per semester (in-state rate) for up to 4 years if the student meets renewal criteria of 3.5 GPA each academic year. This prestigious scholarship has a value of over $50,000.
Criteria for Eligibility
Qualified students are invited to apply and participate in the competition. In order to be eligible, the student must meet the following criteria:
1. Admitted as a full-time freshman to Pitt-Greensburg.
2. Achieved a cumulative GPA of 3.8 or higher (at time of application).
3. Be in the top 10-20% of graduating class, or 1st or 2nd decile (strongly recommended).
4. Curriculum will be evaluated for Honors, AP, or College in High School classes.
5. Any student entering the competition MUST be a United States citizen.

Instructions for the Application
Students who meet this criteria are eligible to compete for a Full-Tuition Scholarship. Please follow the Application Instructions linked here to apply.
Finalists will be selected based on their application and essay and will be notified no later than April 9th. If you are selected as a finalist, you will then be invited to participate in a virtual interview the week of April 12th. The winners will be notified by April 30th.
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).
