    Oxford Scholars

    Oxford designates a number of outstanding entering freshmen as Oxford Scholars each year. Scholars are selected on the basis of their stellar grades, curriculum, test scores, essays, extracurricular activities, and demonstrated interest. Oxford students excel in all types of areas and possess a range of academic  interest and achievements. Students who wish to be considered for a scholarship may nominate themselves on the application and should apply by November 15. More information about what is required can be found in the application requirement section. Scholarships range from 2 year awards to total cost of attendance for eight semesters.

    International Scholarship

    Oxford College has a strong commitment to educating students in a global community and enrolling young scholars from all around the world. Starting with the freshman application process for fall 2013 entry, Oxford College will offer scholarship assistance to a select number of international undergraduate students. All citizens of foreign countries who are not permanent residents of the United States (living in the U.S. or abroad) will be reviewed for this new international scholarship. Admission is highly competitive and funding is limited. See more information.



    National Merit Scholarship

    Entering National Merit finalists, who select Oxford as their first choice college, will receive a National Merit Scholarship sponsored by Oxford.  An honorarium of $1,000 is awarded to students who do not file a PROFILE and FAFSA or do not demonstrate need.  Scholarships of $1,000-$2,000 are awarded to students enrolled full-time with demonstrated need based on information provided on the PROFILE and FAFSA.


    Emory Courtesy Scholarships 

    Dependent children of eligible Emory faculty and staff hired before January 1, 2003 may receive full-tuition scholarships minus the amount of the HOPE Scholarship and Georgia Tuition Equalization Grant (GTEG). Employees hired after December 31, 2002 will receive graduated benefits based upon the employee's year of service. Students eligible for Courtesy benefits, who also receive Emory merit awards, cannot receive awards that exceed their eligibility. Courtesy awards are applied prior to Emory merit awards.

    Eligible faculty and staff and their spouses or domestic partners may also receive a courtesy award for a portion of their tuition. For additional information, visit the Emory University Human Resources website.


    External Scholarships

    Many agencies, employers, military and service organizations award funds to students.  If you are a financial aid recipient, you must notify the Office of Financial Aid, in writing, of any scholarships you are awarded from sources other than Oxford College.  If you receive scholarships or other resources not listed on your award notification, you are required to notify the Office of Financial Aid.

    The combination of external funds and need-based assistance you receive may not exceed your eligibility or the cost to attend Oxford College for the academic year.  Oxford College is required to make adjustments for external scholarships and resources if a student's demonstrated eligibility (or total cost of education) has already been met.  To the extent possible, it is our policy to adjust self-help awards before reducing grant.

    You should inform the Office of Enrollment Services of any special instructions or billing information regarding external scholarships.  All checks for these awards must be sent to the Office of Financial Aid.  Awards will be posted as a payment to your student account.  It is Emory's policy to divide external scholarships equally between fall and spring semesters unless otherwise specified by the donor.


    United Methodist Ministerial Tuition Benefit

    Children of active United Methodist ministers or missionaries may be eligible to receive a scholarship for 45 percent of tuition.  This award may be adjusted when combined with other tuition awards. Applications may be downloaded by visiting our Download Forms link on our webpage.


    Veteran's Education Benefits

    Veterans or dependents of veterans may qualify for monthly education benefits.  Veteran's benefits should be reported on the FAFSA.  The Office of Financial Aid will count VA education benefits as a resource when determining eligibility for other types of aid in accordance with federal policy.

    A student must complete an Application for Education Benefits (VA form 22-1990 for veteran or VA form 22-5490 if spouse/dependent of veteran).  Applications may be printed from the GI Bill Website. The completed application should be returned to the Office of the Registrar, Attn: Veteran Certifying Official, Emory University, Atlanta, GA 30322.  For more information, please call 1-888-GIBILL-1 (1-888-442-4551).

    Yellow Ribbon Program

    The Yellow Ribbon GI Education Enhancement Program is a provision of the Post 9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2008. The first eligible veteran to apply to the Oxford College Yellow Ribbon program will receive the Yellow Ribbon Award of $7,000.00 per academic year while they are enrolled in Oxford College, and will continue with them to Emory College. Please see the Veterans Administration website for additional information on eligibility. Either your Certificate of Eligibility (COE) from the Veteran's Administration or the Veteran's Data Enrollment Sheet may be used as your application for this award.

    Oxford College will begin accepting applications on June 1, 2013. Applications should be emailed to ox.finaid@emory.edu.  Please mark them as Attn: Jennifer Patil, Yellow Ribbon Program.

    This award is given on a first-come, first-served basis to current students or entering new students. Applications will be date and time stamped in the Office for Enrollment Services as they are received. If two applications come in simultaneously, then a random selection process will be used. Applications will be accepted via email only.

    The veteran's name will be forwarded to the Office of the Registrar for final verification of eligibility. The student then will be notified of the award by the Veterans Administration.

    Please direct any questions regarding the Oxford College Yellow Ribbon process to Jennifer Patil, Associate Dean of Financial Aid and Enrollment, Oxford College of Emory University at jennifer.patil@emory.edu, or call (770) 784-8328.
