Student Inspiring Students

To be eligible for the Students Inspiring Students scholarship, students must demonstrate financial need, maintain a minimum 3.5 GPA and receive 100 hours of academic assistance at the Learning Lounge. Scholarship recipients then pay it forward by volunteering their time at the Learning Lounge to help the next generation of scholars.

Scholarship awards are intended to cover tuition, applicable enrollment and program fees and all other non-room and board costs. Tuition and fees will be covered by a combination of aid such as scholarships and grants from federal, state, private and institutional sources. The scholarship package cannot be applied toward parking, health insurance, housing or meal plan rates and is not transferrable, nor does it hold any cash value. This scholarship package is renewable for up to three years for eligible students who make timely application for renewal and meet all academic requirements. (Note: GCU strongly recommends a minimum of 50 hours of service in the GCU Learning Lounge per academic year in order to receive the letter of recommendation). To remain eligible, a student must be continuously enrolled full-time in the Fall/Spring semester and be in good academic standing. Full-time enrollment constitutes enrollment in 12 credits or more, 8 of which must be on the “Ground Campus.” GCU reserves the right to decline to award a scholarship for any reason. If a student does not meet the minimum renewal criteria, a scholarship will not be renewed. GCU reserves the right to change scholarship award and/or renewal criteria at any time without prior notice.
