Keeping Vigil on 2021-22 Merit Scholarship Deadlines
If you're in the hunt for merit scholarships, be sure to stay on top of explicit deadlines a school on your list might have.
In some cases, like Boston University and the University of Richmond, it's a hard deadline that you have to meet in order for you to be considered at all. In others, like Indiana University and many other public institutions, it's a "priority" deadline that maximizes your chances of merit aid before the money runs out. Either way, merit aid continues to be an excellent way for good students to defray the cost of an education.
We've compiled a sampling of schools in our coverage universe with explicit deadlines, along with some stats to help you gauge the size and breadth of the institution's merit offerings. We've also included links to each school's scholarship page for easy access to the details.
Most of these schools automatically consider you for merit scholarships without the need for an additional application.
