The Powell Scholars $42,000 Scholarship receive generous scholarships, enrichment opportunities, and funding for research and creative projects, as well as study abroad. The Nine Dimensions of a Powell Scholar, established by the students themselves, guide our practices collectively, while each student tailors these precepts to their individual scholarly and creative interests.
Institutions where will carry out the studies:
- A cumulative high school GPA of 3.7 or higher (on an unweighted 4.00 scale)
- Undertaken a rigorous academic curriculum – Honors, AP, and/or IB courses
- Demonstrated superior leadership skills in two or more areas, including but not restricted to student government, community service, cultural groups, research or creative activities
- Combined SAT Critical Reading and Math score of at least 1350 or ACT composite score of at least 30
Who can participate?:
High school seniors.
Levels and areas of study:
Given the opportunities in research, fellowships, study abroad, cultural experiences and community service supported by the scholarship, the Powell Scholars Program is designed to coincide with a four-year undergraduate curriculum. Therefore, students who apply for and are offered admission to the Powell Scholars Program AND a Pacific accelerated program must choose either the Powell Scholar Program OR an accelerated program for enrollment. All Powell Scholars must earn an undergraduate degree.
