Academic Scholarships

Baylor offers significant scholarships for academically-talented students. No additional application is required for an academic scholarship. All applicants are automatically and comprehensively considered for academic scholarships when they apply, including students who apply as test optional. 

Learn more below, and be sure to check out our Affordability Planner to make a Baylor education fit your personal budget! 

Freshman Academic Scholarships

Admitted students are automatically considered for an academic scholarship based on a complete review of their high school academic performance. Test scores will not be taken into account for the scholarship review process for students applying for the upcoming academic year due to nationwide testing challenges.

Applicants who submit a complete admission file after February 1 are considered for academic scholarships based on available funding. Renewal is contingent upon maintaining a Baylor cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher.

Baylor also offers a number of scholarship programs for high-achieving students. Scholarships range from $1,000 to full cost of attendance. Learn more and apply if eligible.
