    @ucbalumnus Thank you for your info about the scholarships of Howard Uni. However, why can't I see such information on their official site? (still I can see it on Fastweb or other sources). And I'm also wondering whether those scholarships are available for international applicants or not? Thank in advance.

    Interesting... it used to be at the bottom of https://www2.howard.edu/student-financial-services/cost-of-attendance but is not there any more. You may want to ask the school directly about them.

    Historically, Howard has offered the scholarships to international students, but you may want to ask the school directly to find out if this is still the case.

    No amounts now, perhaps they are re-doing them (or eliminating any guarantees) for this coming app season.
    The Howard University Freshman Scholarship (HUFS) Program is designed to assist accepted First-Time-in-College students who have demonstrated outstanding academic achievement throughout their secondary school career and have chosen to attend Howard University. Scholarships are automatically awarded on a first-come, first-served, basis to eligible candidates. A separate application is not required. (Scholarships are awarded until all funds have been exhausted and not all eligible applicants will receive an award).

    Howard seems to have changed up what it is offering - can anyone find anything about the specifics?
    I'm not finding a merit calculator like there used to be.

    I'm sorry I don't quite understand what you mean by first come first served..
  • ucbalumnusucbalumnus Registered User Posts: 62,843 Senior Member
    "First come first served" means that the earlier applicants will get the scholarships until they run out. Later applicants, even if they meet the scholarship criteria, will not receive the scholarships after they run out.

    Howard used to spell out what the Freshman scholarships consisted of based on ACT/SAT and GPA scores - they had a grid of guaranteed merit that also included the first come first served wording. Now, they still say first come first served but there are no specifics of what they are offering in terms of merit. My DD applied as soon as they opened up to applications based on the former wording but we have no idea what they will offer if anything.

    ^ that one is not automatic, @kareUdon . This particular thread is for scholarships guaranteed to all who meet the GPA/score requirements.

    BU's is competitive and so belongs on (and is on) this list:
