The University of Pittsburgh at Greensburg is making dreams come true via its full-tuition scholarship competition. Now in its sixth year, the program offers three full-tuition scholarships to qualified first-year students matriculating in fall 2022. The award covers the cost of in-state tuition for up to four years if the student meets the renewal criteria of maintaining a 3.5 GPA each academic year. This prestigious scholarship has a value of more than $50,000.
“Pitt-Greensburg is committed to providing a world-renowned Pitt education at an affordable cost” said Mike Husenits, director of Admissions at Pitt-Greensburg. “We recognize that an investment in education pays the best interest, and we strive to make a Pitt degree attainable for our students.”
Students applying for the scholarship must have achieved a cumulative high school GPA of 3.8 or higher at the time of application, be in the top 10 percent to 20 percent of their graduating class or first or second decile, must be a US citizen, and must be admitted as a full-time freshman student. Each applicant’s curriculum will be evaluated for Honors, AP, or College in High School classes. Exempt from the competition are pre-engineering students and dependent students of University of Pittsburgh or UPMC employees.
