    Here's a new one I found with guaranteed scholarships, Texas A&M - Kingsville.

    "Freshman merit scholarships are awarded to entering first-time freshman who show exceptional academic ability through superior test scores and class ranking. Students admitted by December 15 are guaranteed; admission after this date is limited by availability of these scholarships. "

    Appears to give equivalent to full-tuition for 30 ACT + 25% Rank up to near Tuition + Room/Board at 35 ACT

    Texas A&M University - Kingsville

    Application Deadline: (Accepted by) December 15th
    Award (per year): $8,000 + OOS Tuition Waiver up to $15,000 + OOS Tuition Waiver (In-State Tuition: ~$8,000)
    Requirements: Top 25% Rank + 30 ACT up to Top 25% Rank + 35 ACT

    Presidential Scholar for out-of-state students is $25,000 per year, not full tuition. Current out-of-state tuition is $28,900 ($3,900 higher than the Presidential Scholar amount).
    https://scholarships.ua.edu/types/out-of-state.php
    https://financialaid.ua.edu/cost/

    Presidential Scholar for in-state students is still full tuition, and the test score threshold is 32 ACT or 1450 SAT.

    Thank you @ucbalumnus and @TexasApex ! I will incorporate and paste again. Not messing with bold, etc as it doesn't carry over when copy/pasted, and I edited out stuff that doesn't fit the previous format (like renewal requirements - super useful but I think kids can follow the links)

    @mom2collegekids - Confirming Alabama is no longer offering full tuition to Presidential scholars, only Presidential Elites or instate Presidential?
    · Reply · Share
  • ucbalumnusucbalumnus 78252 replies690 threadsRegistered User Senior Member
    @OHMomof2 If possible, I would suggest that the renewal criteria be listed. Some of these scholarships are much less desirable due to their renewal criteria (e.g. at Florida A&M, the scholarship recipient cannot change major).

    In addition, if it is known whether HS GPA is unweighted or weighted (and how weighted if so), it is best if that is listed.

    Feel free to redo the list and post but I think they can get all that from the provided web link, and it's more info to maintain going forward, also not available for all scholarships.
