The scholarship program at Principia welcomes all degree-seeking prospective students, domestic and international, regardless of national and ethnic origin or citizenship. Each of our scholarships is based on stated criteria, regardless of need. By completing the general application for admission, you will automatically be considered for the academic scholarships and, if eligible, for the Arthur F. Schulz Alumni scholarship. The Founders' Scholarship requires a separate application.

Scholarship Application Deadlines

All admissions and scholarship decisions are awarded on a rolling basis, which enables you to receive an admission and scholarship decision within two weeks of completing your application. While Principia College subscribes to the national application deadline of March 1 for regular admission, we encourage you to apply as soon as possible to be considered for all scholarship awards. Your Founders' Scholarship application must be submitted with your application for admission.

First-Time Freshmen

First-time freshmen are invited to apply for admission and scholarships beginning in the fall of their high school senior year. Freshmen are eligible for all scholarships.

Transfer Students

Transfer students are eligible for the Dean’s academic scholarship, the Founders' Scholarship, and the Arthur F. Schultz Alumni scholarship (if applicable).
