Bucknell University’s merit awarding process is comprehensive, holistic and extremely competitive. We’re looking for students who have extraordinary academic records and show promise that their talents will enrich our highly personal, transformative learning environment. 
In order to be considered for a merit scholarship, the student must apply using the scholarship application below. The deadline for the scholarship application is the same as the student’s Bucknell application deadline.
Merit scholarships are awarded at the time of admission and are only available for incoming first-year students. They are renewable for a maximum of eight fall/spring semesters as long as students continue to meet the requirements of each program. We are not able to award multiple academic scholarships to students. Most funding is awarded to students who have demonstrated institutional need as determined by Bucknell’s Office of Financial Aid, but a limited amount will also be awarded to those who do not have financial need or do not apply for aid.

Scholarship applications open each fall and can be submitted any time until the deadline. Your scholarship application deadline is dependent on your application round:
