Carnegie Mellon offers a Carnegie Scholarship to incoming freshmen. Carnegie Scholarships are awarded to academically and artistically talented middle income students who qualify for little to no need-based financial aid. Carnegie Scholarships are open to all qualified U.S. citizens and permanent residents, regardless of race or national origin. You must apply for need-based financial aid to be considered.
You must submit the 2014-2015 FAFSA in order to be considered for Carnegie Scholarships. Besides the FAFSA, if you are awarded a Carnegie Scholarship, you must complete the CSS PROFILE and submit all required tax documents before the scholarship will be credited toward the student's account. Scholarship winners will be notified in their notification of financial aid.
The Carnegie Scholarship is renewable for 8 semesters of undergraduate education (ten semesters for Architecture students), if satisfactory academic performance is maintained and you are assessed Carnegie Mellon tuition. The scholarship is only awarded to incoming freshmen during the admission process and renewed annually if the student meets the cumulative 2.0 QPA requirement.
If your parent is a Carnegie Mellon employee who qualifies for tuition remission, you will not be eligible for a Carnegie Scholarship.
