Freshman Scholarships

It's important to recognize those incoming freshmen with excellent academic records and outstanding promise.  At Tuskegee University, we do this by offering a limited number of renewable merit scholarships.  There is no separate scholarship application.  All students are considered for these opportunities on the basis of their admissions applications and supporting documentation (e.g. official high school transcripts, etc.). 

Our merit-based scholarship awards range from $5,000 to the full cost of attendance per year.  Please note The Alabama Incentive Grant is ONLY for qualified Alabama residents.
