Eligibility Criteria/ Scholarship Guidelines
Selection will be based upon a variety of criteria, including academic achievement and contribution to the quality of student life on the Grounds, as well as the qualities of leadership and citizenship envisioned by the University’s founder, Thomas Jefferson.
All applications will be considered with some preference given to applicants who are relatives of victims of the 9/11 tragedy. A good jump shot wouldn’t hurt either.
No separate application is required.
