Mercer University Presidential Scholarships

Several top-level scholarships are awarded through Scholars Weekend, an annual competition held each fall for the most talented early applicants to Mercer University. Students who wish to be considered for this competition must apply for Early Action admission to Mercer by November 1st.


Applicants are invited based on a Freshman Index (FI) of 3200. The FI is calculated by multiplying the academic high school grade point average (GPA) by 500, then adding that number to the SAT/converted ACT score. For example, a student with a 1350 SAT and a 3.9 academic high school GPA would have an FI of 3300: 3.9(500) + 1350 = 3300.

The annual scholarships awarded to competitors range from $10,500 to full tuition.

by Chris Bernardi

If you walked into a seminar hall and were met with visions of tie-dyed t-shirts advertising High Times and marijuana-leaf tie clips as far as the eye could see, you may think you had stumbled onto the set of the classic movie Dazed and Confused.
