Presidential Scholarship

This competitive scholarship is Concordia's most prestigious award.

Accepted students will be notified of their eligibility and will be asked to attend one of three scholarship dates in order to increase their merit scholarship to $23,000 annually ($92,000 over four years). This is an automatic increase based on attending a scholarship date, with no competition or application/essay requirements.

Excellence Scholarships

Automatic academic scholarships, ranging in value from $17,000 to $26,000 annually ($68,000 to $104,000 over four years).

In most cases, students will automatically be notified of their award amount based on their academic performance and test scores. Incoming transfer students should see the transfer section for detailed info.

Talent Scholarships

These scholarships range in value and require separate applications and, in some cases, performance submissions.

Students selected to receive these awards will be expected to participate in events and programs as determined by the respective departments.
