President's Scholarship for College Honors

President Sawatsky's TreeFifty-four (54) scholarships in an amount equal to sixty percent (60%) of that student's first year tuition costs are awarded each year to first-year students who have demonstrated excellent scholarship, leadership, and Christian character. President's Scholarship candidates are selected by a committee from the pool of first year applicants who have submitted a complete application for admission before January 15. The same eligibility criteria and process apply for the President's Scholarship as the Trustees' Scholarship. Recipients of President's Scholarships are eligible for participation in the College Honors Program.

President's Scholarships are renewable to the recipient for three (3) subsequent years at Messiah College — locked at an amount equal to sixty percent (60%) of that student's first year tuition cost. To be eligible for scholarship renewal, the student must:

  • maintain a 3.2 grade point average over the freshman academic year, a 3.4 grade point average each following year, and
  • exhibit a continuing leadership role on campus.

This scholarship may not be combined with any Messiah College Dean's Scholarship.
