Finalist interviews for Emory Scholars take place in mid-March. If you are a finalist, you will be brought to Emory (at no expense to you) for activities designed to help you become better acquainted with programs and opportunities at Emory and to aid the Goizueta Scholars Selection Committee in making its final choices for the various awards. Attendance is mandatory for all Scholar finalists.
The selection for merit-based scholar programs is administered by the Office of Admission in partnership with esteemed faculty.
Roughly 8,000-10,000 students apply to be Scholars each year. Out of that, 175–200 students are selected as Scholar Finalists. Finalists are required to attend an on-campus Scholars Finalists Visit held in the spring. Finalists are brought to campus at no expense to the student.
Taking place over several days, the visit includes activities and interviews designed to help finalists become better acquainted with Emory University and the distinct opportunities available for them here.
Applicants who are not selected as finalists for a program are still fully reviewed for admission under their selected application plan and will also automatically be considered for other smaller merit-based scholarships.
The Scholar selection process is completely separate from the financial aid process. When a student is eligible for both merit scholarships and financial aid, merit scholarships are awarded first. Students who applied for financial aid may also be eligible for need-based grants and loans if there is remaining need beyond the merit scholarship award.
How to Apply:
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).
