Emory offers scholarships based on academic merit to a select group of incoming first-year students. Recipients of the Emory Scholars awards receive scholarships renewable for four years of undergraduate study, provided they maintain high standards of personal and academic excellence. Scholarships range from two-thirds tuition awards to full-cost scholarships.
These scholarships require that a student be nominated by appropriate officials at his or her high school by November 15 of the senior year. Any secondary school in the United States or abroad may nominate up to four (4) students for Emory Scholars and one (1) student for Goizueta Scholars. Students nominated for the Emory Scholars Program may also be nominated for the Goizueta Scholars Program. The Scholars Program nomination form and the student’s complete application for admission (Common Application and Emory Supplement) must be submitted online by the November 15 deadline.

Emory Scholars represent an impressive array of academic, cultural and extracurricular interests and achievements. Most have been National Merit finalists or semifinalists and almost all have won distinction beyond the classroom, including national awards in music, languages, science, mathematics, or other fields. They have held principal leadership offices in their secondary schools, served as editors of school newspapers and yearbooks, earned distinction in scouting and similar organizations and played significant roles in community and volunteer programs. Emory Scholar nominations must come from high school counselors.
Goizueta Scholars have all of the attributes listed above, but should demonstrate an interest in business through participation in entrepreneurial activities, internships, business clubs, business-related conferences and competitions and community service.
Each year Emory College offers several half-tuition music merit scholarships to incoming first-year students who show exceptional promise in their applied area of music. Students who wish to be considered for the Music Merit Scholarship should plan on majoring (not minoring) in music.

Barkley, the Barkley Forum, in conjunction with Emory College Office of Admission, awards a merit scholarship to an incoming first-year student each year. Applicants must demonstrate academic achievement and debate excellence to be eligible and should apply directly to the director of the Barkley Forum for consideration.
