In a down economy, incoming freshmen can receive a $3,000 scholarship that is renewable up to $12,000 over four years. That’s great news for Ohio.
No matter what your economic situation, your child may be eligible for a $3,000 scholarship from Cleveland State University (CSU). It’s called the Freshman Scholars Program, and it will be awarded to new full-time freshmen who enter in Fall 2010 with a minimum 3.0 cumulative GPA and an ACT Score of 23 or a combined 1060 SAT total score.
“In these difficult economic times, Cleveland State wants parents to know that we want to help with significant scholarships for their qualifying sons and daughters,” explained Rob Spademan, Assistant Vice President, Marketing and Admissions. “Cleveland State University understands the added economic burden that families face when sending children to college during these stressful times.”
February 1, 2010 is the last day to apply for the Freshman Scholars Program so it is important to submit an application as early as possible. Incoming freshmen can apply online at www.engagecsu.com.
The $3,000 scholarship is renewable by maintaining a 3.0 cumulative GPA for full-time students. Accordingly, a four-year scholarship can be worth as much as $12,000. With CSU tuition at about $8,000 per year, the Freshman Scholars Program reduces annual tuition by 36%.
At the recent Cleveland State Admissions Fall Visit Day Program, news about the Freshman Scholars Program received enthusiastic response from the 500+ parents and prospective students in the audience. With more than 200 majors and programs, CSU offers a complete academic portfolio coupled with a $500 million campus transformation, new residence halls on campus, NCAA Division I sports and more. Parents can make a 5-minute visit online at www.engagecsu.com.
“We created this program to help incoming freshmen and their families at a time when they are looking for an outstanding education at a reasonable price,” added Spademan. “This new program gives parents a way to recognize and reward their children for maintaining good grades and test scores while in high school.
