James Edward Oglethorpe Scholarships cover tuition unpaid by state scholarships and grants for a maximum of eight regular (fall and spring) semesters of undergraduate study in the TU program.  Recipients are selected during the annual Scholarship Weekend competition for rising first-time, full-time freshmen held on campus in January of each year. Students must achieve a minimum SAT/ACT score, earn a minimum cumulative grade-point average in a competitive high school curriculum and demonstrate a superior record of leadership in extracurricular activities either in school or in the community. This scholarship is renewable for a total of eight regular (fall and spring) semesters provided the recipient maintains a minimum cumulative grade-point average of 3.2 and completes a minimum of 12 semester hours each fall and spring semester.
