TROY unveils merit-based scholarships for 2020 academic year

September 4, 2019

Troy University has enhanced its merit-based scholarships to further recognize high academic achievement and provide additional opportunities for prospective students.

The new list, which went into effect Sept. 1 and is available to students who will enroll in fall of 2020, represents changes to some existing scholarships, as well as some new scholarship programs.

“We vie for students in a very competitive environment. It is necessary that, given the value of a college degree, we offer students scholarship opportunities which will assist them in attaining that degree,” said Buddy Starling, Associate Vice Chancellor for Enrollment Management. “We are fortunate to be able to offer a diverse and competitive scholarship program in order to bring the best students to TROY.”

Included among the new scholarships is an upgrade to the Millennium Scholars Award, which features two tiers, one which provides tuition and traditional housing, which requires an ACT score of 30 (1360 RSAT) to 32 (1440 RSAT) and a high school GPA of 3.7, and one which provides tuition, full housing and meal plan, which requires a 33 (1450 RSAT) to 36 (1600 RSAT) score on the ACT and a 3.7 high school GPA. The Millennium Scholars Award is for entering freshmen.
