Your Common Application or Hope College Application also serves as your application for academic scholarships at Hope. Academic scholarships are based on your cumulative GPA, SAT, ACT, or CLT scores, and course selection (based on what’s available at your school). Be sure to submit any new academic information for consideration by February 1 of your senior year in high school.
Students are eligible for the Distinguished Scholar Award if they've achieved a 3.8 GPA. Test scores are optional for the upcoming Fall, but if students have an ACT of 26 or an SAT of 1230 (or an 81 CLT), then an incoming GPA of 3.6 is required. This scholarship is guaranteed through your sophomore year and renewable for your two remaining years if you maintain a cumulative GPA of 2.75.
