Paul Tulane Awards are merit-based scholarships offered to incoming first-time freshmen applicants by the Office of Undergraduate Admission. The scholarships cover full tuition (plus mandatory fees for those initially enrolling at Tulane in the fall of 2014 or later) and are renewable for four years (five years for students pursuing the five-year accredited professional program track in Architecture) provided the student maintains a 3.00 cumulative grade point average and continuous enrollment in a full-time undergraduate division.
Typical scholarship recipients rank in the top 5 percent of the class, have a rigorous academic program with honors and advanced placement courses, and have an outstanding record of extracurricular activities and score near the top of the range in a college admission test.
Students may not receive a Paul Tulane Award in combination with any other Tulane merit scholarship, ROTC scholarship, Faculty-Staff Tuition Waiver or Tuition Exchange Scholarship. Students may combine the award with a partial athletic scholarship. Students offered a Paul Tulane Award may qualify for need-based aid. Students guilty of violations of the Code of Student Conduct or Code of Academic Conduct will forfeit all remaining portions of the Paul Tulane Award that they have been offered.
In order to be eligible for the Paul Tulane Award, you must first submit your application for admission and all supporting documents by the Early Action/Single Choice Early Action deadline of November 15. Submit the Paul Tulane Award application by the deadline early in December. Your Paul Tulane Award decision will be made on a rolling basis by the Admission Office.
The Paul Tulane Award application and deadline may be found on the Office of Undergraduate Admission website, at http://admission.tulane.edu/aid/merit.php.
General Renewal Conditions
The scholarships are guaranteed to match the full-time tuition (and mandatory fees for those awarded to students who initially enrolled at Tulane in the fall of 2014 or later) cost each year provided the student maintains a 3.00 cumulative grade point average and continuous enrollment in a full-time undergraduate division. Additional renewal conditions exist. Please visit the merit scholarship renewal criteria page for more details.
