No, they are not automatically renewable. If you are interested in continuing to receive a Merit scholarship, you need to submit a new application. A student is eligible to receive the merit scholarship once a year. If a student applies and doesn’t receive a scholarship, they may continue to apply during all three application periods until they are awarded the scholarship.
If you are a Financial Aid recipient, receiving any scholarship will affect your Cost of Attendance (COA), and it is your responsibility to notify the Financial Aid Office if you are selected for an award. Should you be awarded a scholarship from any source (internal or external), take time to send the institution a “Thank You” letter.
