As Appalachian State University’s oldest and most academically competitive merit-based scholarship, the Chancellor’s Scholarship is designed for students with ambitious academic goals – those who seek graduate or professional post-baccalaureate degrees to become physicians, attorneys, Ph.D. holders and more.
Appalachian welcomed 10 new Chancellor’s Scholarship recipients to campus this fall.
“These are academic high achievers. The Chancellor’s Scholarship is awarded to students who are among the strongest applicants admitted to The Honors College and to Appalachian,” said Dr. Ted Zerucha, interim director of The Honors College.
This year’s recipients have an average high school grade point average of 4.8 and earned an average 1502 on the SAT college entrance exam and 43 on the ACT composite.
Chancellor’s Scholars may be in any major and in any college. The scholarship offers full institutional costs for eight semesters, plus other academic and co-curricular benefits including special housing and travel opportunities. Students must maintain a 3.45 minimum grade point average to renew the scholarship.
