Baylor offers a substantial number of endowed need-based scholarships; however, individual scholarship applications are not required. Instead, the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) serves as the basis for these scholarships. Award amounts vary based on an evaluation of the student's need and merit. The priority deadline for completing the FAFSA is March 1. Renewal of these scholarships is contingent on the student maintaining financial need, full-time undergraduate enrollment, and a minimum 2.5 cumulative Baylor GPA.
Need-based scholarships are available to incoming students who choose to live in select Living-Learning Centers. The scholarships are for $3,000 per year and are renewable for three additional years for a total scholarship package of $12,000. The Free Application for Federal Student Aid must be completed to demonstrate financial need. Learn more about Living-Learning Center scholarships.
Baylor awards sibling scholarships in the amount of $3,000 each on a first-come, first serve basis to undergraduate students who have one or more dependent siblings concurrently enrolled at Baylor (at least one must be an incoming freshman). Students must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by March 1 and demonstrate financial need. Each sibling must be unconditionally admitted and subsequently enroll at Baylor. For consideration, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Use Sibling Scholarship in the email subject line and include each sibling's name and Baylor student ID number (send one email per family). Renewal of this scholarship is contingent on the siblings maintaining financial need, full-time undergraduate enrollment, and a minimum 2.5 cumulative Baylor GPA. Please note that renewal eligibility ends when fewer than two siblings are enrolled as undergraduates at Baylor.
