  • Furman's merit-based scholarships are highly competitive awards which aim to recognize those students who show the potential and promise to make an impact in Furman's community.

    The Herman W. Lay Scholarships are awarded to up to four incoming students each year who have displayed exceptional academic achievement and distinctive personal accomplishment. Full tuition, weighted average room costs, board and student fees are covered.

    The committee works with two applications: the application for admission to Furman and the merit-based scholarships application. As committee members review these two applications, they consider the following factors:
    -Academic record: finalists are typically above a 32 on the ACT or above a 1400 on the SAT
    -Extracurricular involvement: music, sports, or community involvement
    -Personal achievement

    For more details and to apply, please visit the scholarship provider's website.
