About Our Scholarships

Availability
All scholarships and grants are dependent on availability of financial aid funds. Early application for admission to Catawba so as to qualify for scholarship consideration is encouraged.


Renewal
Scholarships have different academic expectations than federal, state and College need-based aid. Scholarships are renewable for three additional years if eligibility is maintained. Recipients should refer to their scholarship letter for standards required for renewal.


Test Scores Considered
SAT scores are used for any student applying as a freshman who has not opted into being test optional. Scores are taken into consideration based on individual student's best total scores on the Math sub-score of the SAT and Reading Comprehension sub-scores of the SAT or the ACT Composite score. Writing sub-scores from either test are not considered in making award determinations.
