Transfer Student Scholarships

Transfer students are a vital and growing part of the Tuskegee University student body. A limited number of renewable merit scholarship opportunities are set aside exclusively for incoming transfer students who have shown previous academic success and outstanding promise prior to their enrollment.  There is no separate scholarship application.  All transfer students are considered for these opportunities on the basis of their admissions applications and supporting documentation (e.g. official transcripts, etc.)

Please note, the Alabama Transfer Incentive Grant is ONLY for qualified Alabama residents.
