This tool is meant to provide an estimate of what your Merit Scholarship might be. It may be used by U.S. Citizens or other individuals who meet eligibility criteria for submitting a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). To calculate your potential merit-based aid, enter your GPA and your ACT (see SAT conversion chart) below.
- You must have a minimum 2.75 GPA and ACT/SAT score of 19/900 to qualify. (Athletes see requirements below.)
- Your Milligan admission application serves as the application for Milligan academic merit scholarships — no additional scholarship application is necessary for these merit awards. You’ll be notified at the point of admission of your award eligibility.
- Merit Scholarships can be combined with need-based aid and some other Milligan scholarships. See exclusions and restrictions below. Be sure to review all aid options and talk to your Admissions Counselor to see how affordable Milligan is!
- PLEASE NOTE: this scholarship calculator provides only an ESTIMATE. It is based on merit awards for 2018-19 and amounts are subject to change at any time.
