Gallatin Dean’s Scholarship

For current Gallatin students and incoming Gallatin transfer students: to be considered for this scholarship (Gallatin January Term and Summer travel courses only), you must meet the following criteria:

  • Must be enrolled at Gallatin at the time of application OR must be an incoming Gallatin transfer student whose Gallatin admission can be confirmed
  • Have a good academic standing (GPA 3.0 or better; no grades of Incomplete)
  • Have a current FAFSA on file with the Office of Financial Aid and show unmet need
  • Minimum of half-time matriculation during the semester awarded (changes in the number of credits registered for during the semester may alter your award)

Priority Deadline for Summer Travel Courses: February 1

The amount awarded is typically equivalent to half of the course tuition. Scholarships are awarded based on the availability of funds. Applicants may investigate additional funding options but because summer aid for study away tends to be limited, awardees should anticipate covering the remaining costs of the program without additional aid.

Final scholarship decisions will be made in February. Students who disqualify may receive earlier notification.

IMPORTANT NOTE : Applicants may be admitted to the travel course before receiving scholarship notification. Such students may hold off on submitting a program confirmation until after receiving scholarship notification. Applicants who believe they can cover the full program cost by other means are encouraged to submit a program confirmation earlier in case the course fills, as only a few slots will be held in each course for Dean’s Scholarship awardees. However, if applicants confirm before scholarship notification, their scholarship application will be withdrawn.
