Fordham Presidential Scholarships are awarded to entering freshmen graduating from high school in the top 1% of their class. Fordham Scholarships for Semifinalists are awarded to finalists and semifinalists in the National Merit or National Hispanic Recognition competitions who have an A or A- average and are in the top 2-3% of all admitted students. This scholarship is an annual award which augments Pell, state gift aid and any other tuition specific aid to cover full tuition. The scholarship will be adjusted for only one half or other non-tuition-specific outside resources or scholarships. It will be applied towards tuition charges for courses taken as a traditional undergraduate student at Fordham. Presidential awards also cover the average cost of a double room or actual charges, whichever is less (excluding board and fees). Applications must be received before December 16, 2016.
These scholarships are awarded on the basis of excellent academic achievement in high school, test scores and personal characteristics. Presidential Scholarships are awarded to the top 20 admitted students each year. These are four year scholarships which may be received for up to eight semesters (fall and spring only).
Fordham University is a private, nonprofit, coeducational research university in New York City, United States. It was founded by the Catholic Diocese of New York in 1841 as St. John's College, placed in the care of the Society of Jesus shortly thereafter, and has since become an independent institution under a lay board of trustees, which describes the university as in the Jesuit tradition.
