Dean’s Scholarships

Dean's Scholarships award $15,000 annually to prospective students with outstanding academic profiles highlighting a very rigorous curriculum, superior grades and standardized test scores with a commitment to school and civic engagement.

Most funding is awarded to students who have demonstrated institutional need as determined by Bucknell’s Office of Financial Aid, but a limited amount will also be awarded to those who do not have financial need or do not apply for aid.

Recipients will receive notifications along with their admissions decisions.

Dean's Scholarships are automatically renewed for second, third and fourth years as long as recipients maintain satisfactory academic progress and meet requirements of the program.

Dean's Scholarships are awarded at the discretion of the deans; there is no application for this scholarship.
