Students on Walkway

The VSU Admissions Office gives out academic scholarships to incoming freshmen each Fall Semester.

Students that meet the minimum requirements for the scholarships will automatically be sent an application from the Admissions Office. In order to be considered for one of these scholarships, freshmen must have a grade point average of 3.1 academic classes only, SAT or ACT scores and extracurricular activities. The minimum SAT score to qualify is 1250 (combined Critical Reading & Math) or 28 ACT (Composite). We do combine your best scores from each test.

The awards range from $1,000 to $4,000. Renewable for up to four years with a 3.0 cumulative GPA.


  • To qualify, students must be accepted by March 1.
