Competitive Scholarships offered by Southwestern University are awarded to students who demonstrate excellence in the classroom, extracurricularly and within their greater educational community. While your application for admission is also the application for Competitive Scholarships, an interview is required for all candidates to advance further in the competition. Competitive scholarships are due the first Tuesday in December, and the interview will be the first Tuesday in February.
The Brown Scholarship is Southwestern University's most prestigious and competitive award. Candidates must rank minimally in the top 5% of their high school class or, if high school does not rank, have the equivalent of a 3.8 GPA on a 4.0 scale. All candidates must interview by the first Tuesday in February, and finalists must participate in our scholarship event in March.
