Cleveland State University has launched a new scholarship program that will apply to incoming freshmen in fall 2010.
Under the Freshman Scholars Program, full-time, incoming freshmen with at least a 3.0 cumulative GPA and an ACT score of at least 23 or an SAT score of 1060 will be eligible for a $3,000 scholarship from the university. Their economic situation will not be a factor.
“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,” said Rob Spademan, assistant vice president for marketing and admissions at Cleveland State. “This new program gives parents a way to recognize and reward their children for maintaining good grades and test scores while in high school.”
The scholarship is renewable for three years as long as students maintain a 3.0 cumulative GPA and are enrolled full time. Annual undergraduate tuition for full-time students at Cleveland State is about $8,000. Students must apply for the scholarship by Feb. 1, 2010.
