The Application Process – Deadline: November 15
To be guaranteed consideration for the Emory University Scholar selection process students must submit all required application materials by the November 15 Emory University Scholar Programs deadline. Applicants will need to select one of Emory's three admission decision plans (Early Decision I, Early Decision II, or Regular Decision). Please note students applying Early Decision I (EDI) may apply for the Scholar Programs, but need to meet the EDI November 1 deadline for all application materials.
Please note for the 2016-17 application cycle, applicants no longer need to be nominated by a high school guidance/college counselor to be considered for the Emory University Scholar Programs, and no additional nomination forms are required.
The selection for merit-based scholarships is administered by the Emory University Office of Undergraduate Admission in conjunction with Emory College, Oxford College, and the Goizueta Business School. The scholarship selection process remains separate from the financial aid application process and will have no impact on a student's need-based financial aid award.
Roughly 175-200 Scholar applicants will receive notification of their selection as a Scholar Finalist as along with admission to Emory College, Oxford College, or the Goizueta Business School by February 15. If selected as a finalist, students will be invited to and required to attend the on-campus Scholar Finalists Visit Program. Each Scholar Finalists Visit Program will take place over several days in the spring and provide activities and interviews designed to help finalists become better acquainted with Emory University and the distinct Scholar Programs available. The Scholar Selection Committee makes its final choices for the various awards immediately following these Visit programs.
Finalists will only be invited to attend one specific program: Emory Scholars, Oxford Scholars, or Goizueta Scholars.
To be considered for a merit scholarship and membership in a Scholar Program, attendance at an on-campus Scholar Finalist Visit Program is mandatory.
