Financial Aid - Additional Resources for Traditional Undergraduates

THE INSTITUTION (ASBURY UNIVERSITY

Scholarships, Awards, Grants:  The scholarship program at Asbury University has been established to recognize outstanding academic achievement, leadership ability, excellence of performance and/or financial need.  Recipients are selected on the basis of academic performance as shown by grade point average, test scores, and other criteria.  Scholarships are awarded on an annual basis and are awarded only to those students pursuing their first bachelor’s degree on a full-time basis (minimum 12 hours per semester).  Awards shall cover the traditional terms, fall and spring, only.  Complete procedures for applying for scholarships may be obtained from the Financial Aid Office or the Admissions Office.  Transfer students are entitled to receive a scholarship for the normal time frame expected to complete the degree requirements, not to exceed four years or eight semesters.  In order to receive scholarships, students must be enrolled at and complete their financial aid through Asbury University.  Students enrolled in the 3-2 Engineering program with the University of Kentucky are not eligible to receive Asbury University scholarships once they have enrolled at and are handling financial aid through the University of Kentucky.

Merit Finalist/Frances Asbury Honors Scholarship:  A scholarship equal to 70% of tuition will be awarded to National Merit finalists who graduated from high school the previous spring and are entering their freshman year during the fall semester. Students are entitled to receive the scholarship for up to four years or eight semesters as long as a 3.5 cumulative GPA is maintained. A student who does not maintain a 3.5 cumulative GPA at the end of an academic year will forfeit the scholarship permanently. 

John Wesley Hughes Scholarship:  Two scholarships equal to 100% of tuition will be awarded on a competitive basis to the one new male student and the one new female student who demonstrate the highest outstanding scholastic achievement. Eligible applicants will receive an invitation to the competition weekend held each year in early spring. To be invited to the competition weekend, applicants must meet the criteria for a 30% Presidential Scholarship or a 35% Governor’s Scholarship. Evaluation will include academic records, test scores, rank in class, extra-curricular activities, leadership ability, quality of high school program, letters of recommendation, an essay and an interview. Students are entitled to receive the scholarship for up to four years or eight semesters as long as a 3.6 cumulative GPA is maintained.  Students who do not maintain the required 3.6 cumulative GPA at the end of any academic year will forfeit the Hughes Scholarship permanently. However, students maintaining at least a 3.5 cumulative GPA may still receive the 30% Presidential Scholarship or the 35% Governor’s Scholarship that they were originally awarded.

H C Morrison Scholarship:  Sixteen scholarships equal to 50% of tuition will be awarded on a competitive basis to new students who demonstrate the most outstanding scholastic achievement. Eligible applicants will receive an invitation to the competition weekend held each year in early spring. To be invited to the competition weekend, applicants must meet the criteria for a 30% Presidential Scholarship or a 35% Governor’s Scholarship. Evaluation will include academic records, test scores, rank in class, extra-curricular activities, leadership ability, quality of high school program, letters of recommendation, an essay and an interview.

Students are entitled to receive the scholarship for up to four years or eight semesters as long as a 3.5 cumulative GPA is maintained. Students who do not maintain the required 3.5 cumulative GPA at the end of any academic year will forfeit the scholarship permanently.

Presidential Scholarship:  Students who demonstrate high academic achievement in high school and who meet minimum standard of admission in all categories may qualify for a Presidential Scholarship.  The scholarships range from 15% to 30% of tuition. 

A 15% scholarship will be awarded to new students who meet two of the following three criteria: 

  • minimum 3.5 cumulative GPA on a 4.0 scale

  • minimum ACT composite of 30 or SAT composite of 1320
  • upper 2% of high school class - minimum of 50 students in graduating class. 

(A student who is the valedictorian of his/her graduating class with a graduating class size of 20-49 will be considered to have met the rank in class criterion.  A student who is the valedictorian of his/her graduating class with a class size of less than 20 will need to meet the GPA and minimum test score requirements to qualify for this scholarship.) 

Home-schooled students become eligible for this scholarship by achieving a qualifying score on the ACT or the SAT.  Class rank and high school GPA are not considered.

Students are entitled to receive the scholarship for up to four years or eight semesters as long as renewal grade point average requirements are met. 

  • A 3.3 cumulative GPA must be maintained to renew the scholarship awarded at the 30% level. 
  • A 3.2 cumulative GPA must be maintained to renew the scholarship awarded at the 20% level. 
  • A 3.1 cumulative GPA must be maintained to renew the scholarship awarded at the 15% level. 

A student who loses a scholarship at a particular level and then subsequently reaches the required GPA for that level may have the scholarship reinstated. A student who loses a scholarship at a particular level may not receive a scholarship at a lower level. It is the responsibility of the student to notify the Financial Aid Office once the minimum cumulative GPA is re-attained. 

Governor’s Scholarship:  Scholarships equal to 35% of tuition will be awarded to students who graduated from Kentucky high schools and who attended either the Governor's Scholars program or the Governor's School for the Arts program. Recipients of the Governor's Scholarship are not eligible for additional Asbury University merit or minority scholarships. This Scholarship will not, however, affect additional need-based Asbury aid or aid received from the Kentucky Educational Excellence Scholarship (KEES) program or other external sources. This award is renewed for up to four years or eight semesters provided the recipient maintains a cumulative GPA of 3.30 at Asbury University. Those students who meet the criteria for the Level III Presidential Scholarship will be invited to campus in early spring to compete for the Hughes and Morrison scholarships.

A student who loses a scholarship at a particular level and then subsequently reaches the required GPA for that level may have the scholarship reinstated. A student who loses a scholarship at a particular level may not receive a scholarship at a lower level. It is the responsibility of the student to notify the Financial Aid Office once the minimum cumulative GPA is re-attained.

Music Performance Scholarship:  Music Performance Scholarships are available to prospective students with demonstrated abilities and interest in music.  Eligible students include those intending to major or minor in music, and students only desiring to actively participate in music ensembles.

Applicants must complete the Asbury University admissions application process, be admitted in good standing, perform an audition, submit a “Music Performance Scholarship” application, submit a Letter of Recommendation from a music professional who knows the applicant’s work, and have a minimum 2.25 (4.0 scale) high school or college GPA. Music Performance Scholarships will be awarded soon after the application process is complete and Asbury University receives the candidate’s completed FAFSA.

The initial scholarship is offered by contract and is maintained annually by active participation in an assigned ensemble and by meeting the minimum cumulative GPA required for graduation.

Keyboard and guitar students must also take private lessons on their auditioned instrument.  Students must continue to participate into their eighth semester, unless student teaching. Students awarded large scholarships based on successful auditions in several areas may be assigned participation in several ensembles. Scholarship recipients in composition begin lessons in the sophomore year. 

The specific ensemble requirements for each semester are as follows:  Orchestral strings and harp enroll in the Orchestra, wind and percussion instruments enroll in Concert Band, vocalists enroll in the Asbury Chorale, handbell ringers enroll in Handbell Choir, and, in addition to private lessons, guitar and keyboard students are assigned an ensemble by their Area Coordinator.

For more information, or to request an application, contact the Music Department Office by calling 1-859-858-3511, ext. 2250, or by emailing the Music Department Chair at mark.schell@asbury.edu.

Harry Hosier Scholarship:  The Harry Hosier Scholarship is a scholarship designated for prospective African-American students in honor of Harry Hosier. Harry Hosier, the first black preacher of Methodism, was born a slave near Fayetteville, North Carolina. Even though he was illiterate, he became one of the most eloquent preachers of his day. As Francis Asbury's itinerant companion, he became a popular orator who was able to reach out to the enslaved, the poor, and the uneducated. The purpose of this scholarship is to provide and maintain an awareness of the value the University places on ethnic diversity and its attention to multicultural concerns on campus; therefore, race will be a factor in making the selection.

Two scholarships equal to 70% of tuition are awarded to new students who demonstrate outstanding scholastic achievement.  U.S. citizenship and a minimum GPA of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale are required for consideration. Evaluation will also include academic records, test scores, rank in class, extracurricular activities (particularly as they relate to African-American ethnic minority concerns), leadership ability, quality of program, letters of recommendation, an essay and an interview. This award may be renewed for up to four years provided the recipient maintains at least a 2.0 cumulative GPA and continues to demonstrate the outstanding qualities that led to the selection. A recipient who does not meet the minimum GPA at the end of an academic year shall forfeit the scholarship permanently.

Jose Velazquez Scholarship:  In keeping with the goal of making Asbury a more multicultural community, the University has established the Jose Velazquez Scholarship for Hispanic students to encourage enrollment of North American students of Hispanic origin. This scholarship honors the memory of the Rev. Jose Velazquez, a former board member of Asbury University. Rev. Velazquez was an outstanding example of Christian leadership in Hispanic communities of Chicago, Illinois, and El Paso, Texas.

Two scholarships equal to 70% of tuition are awarded to new students who demonstrate outstanding scholastic achievement. U.S. citizenship and a minimum GPA of 3.00 on a 4.00 scale are required for consideration. Evaluation will also include academic records, test scores, rank in class, extracurricular activities (particularly as they relate to Hispanic-American ethnic minority concerns), leadership ability, quality of program, letters of recommendation, an essay and an interview. This award may be renewed for up to four years provided the recipient maintains at least a 2.0 cumulative GPA and continues to demonstrate the outstanding qualities that led to the selection. A recipient who does not meet the minimum GPA at the end of an academic year shall forfeit the scholarship permanently.

Rogers Scholars Award: Scholarships equal to 20% of tuition will be awarded to students who successfully completed the Rogers Scholars program, have a high school GPA of 3.0 or better, and an ACT of 24 or above. This award is renewable for up to four years or eight semesters provided the recipient maintains a cumulative GPA of 3.10 at Asbury University. Incoming students who demonstrate eligibility for a higher percentage scholarship based on GPA and/or ACT score will be awarded the higher of the two scholarships.

Theatre and Cinema Performance Scholarship: The Theatre & Cinema Performance Program awards scholarships in varying amounts to outstanding students who demonstrate a potential to significantly contribute to the Theatre & Cinema Program of the University.

In order to maintain this scholarship, students must meet the minimum cumulative GPA required for graduation, pass a minimum of 24 credits per year, major or minor in Theatre, and continue to have the recommendations of the Theatre & Cinema Performance Program.

Business Scholars Program Scholarship: This scholarship for new students is designed to support Christian men and women interested in advancing the cause of Christ in the fields of Business Management and Accounting. A $10,000 Business Scholars Program Scholarship will be awarded to 2-3 students per year and can be renewed annually.  This scholarship is competitive and non-need based. Students must be accepted by the University, declare a Business Management or Accounting major, and have achieved a minimum test score of 24 ACT/1110 SAT, and a cumulative high school GPA of 3.0 or higher.  Candidates with higher academic qualifications and evidence of involvement in business or leadership-related areas will be given priority. For consideration, please complete the scholarship application.

Athletic Scholarship:  The Athletic Department awards scholarships in varying amounts to outstanding athletes who demonstrate a potential to significantly contribute to the athletic program of the University.

International Student Scholarship:  Each year the Scholarship Committee will select new international applicants to receive partial scholarships. Selection will be based upon academic standing, letters of recommendation and an essay written by the student. The awarding of these scholarships to new recipients will be made in early spring each year. This scholarship is available only to persons who are not citizens of the United States and/or Canada.

The purpose of this scholarship is to serve the international community through the education of young leaders, to provide qualified international students the opportunity of an education at Asbury University and to maintain an awareness of international concerns through the presence of students from other countries on campus. Deadline for application is January 1.

These scholarships may be renewed for a total of four years or eight semesters (excluding any summer terms) as long as the student maintains satisfactory academic progress. Failure to maintain acceptable academic progress will result in notification of scholarship non-renewal.

Asbury University Alumni Honors Award:  Two awards consisting of 5% of tuition will be given annually to entering freshmen who are the direct descendants of an Asbury University alumnus. These are one-time awards and are not renewable. The scholarships will be awarded to students who have outstanding high school records. A letter of application must be received by April 15 by the Alumni Relations Office who selects the recipients.  For detailed information, please contact the Alumni Relations Office.

Church Match Grant:  The Church Match program was established to encourage churches to support students with scholarship aid.  Asbury University will match scholarships awarded by churches up to $1000 per academic year.  The Church Match Grant is not dependent on need and students do not need to fill out a FAFSA to qualify.  Gifts will be accepted from churches and mission agencies only and the annual gifts must be received at the University by the first day of classes of an award year.  Students enrolling for the spring semester (who were not enrolled in the fall) need to have funds in by the first day of classes of the spring semester.  The Church Match Grant will not be awarded for the Summer Term.  Applications are required and are available online at www.asbury.edu/financialaid/forms.

Multiple Family Waiver:  When more than one dependent sibling from a family is enrolled full-time at Asbury University as a traditional undergraduate student, a tuition waiver will be granted for each student (4% of tuition per student for two students and 5% of tuition per student for three or more students). This waiver also applies to husband and wife who are both enrolled full-time in the traditional undergraduate program at Asbury University.

Institutional Employment:  Eligible students who have filed their employment application with the Human Resources Office may obtain on-campus employment in such areas as offices, laboratories, dormitories, the library, the cafeteria, the physical plant, or the tutoring center.  Students may work up to twenty hours per week at the approved minimum wage level. Applications are required and are available in the Campus Employment Office.

Senior Citizen Waiver:  Students enrolled in the traditional undergraduate program who are at least 62 years of age and who are U.S. citizens may receive a waiver of tuition for a maximum of 4.0 credit hours per academic semester (including summer).  See Academic expenses for requirements.
