    Does anyone know how current the Yolasite lists are for the various competitive and automatic scholarships?

    This thread was made because http://automaticfulltuition.yolasite.com was last updated a while ago, so many of the listed scholarships have been changed or removed. In any case, any scholarships of interest should be checked on college web sites.

    The http://competitivefulltuition.yolasite.com and http://nmfscholarships.yolasite.com lists are similarly old, so any scholarships of interest need to be checked on college web sites.

    Troy University Deadline is December 1st for Consideration for Full-Ride, as we so painfully discovered today.
  • ucbalumnusucbalumnus Registered User Posts: 64,336 Senior Member
    Looks like Troy no longer has automatic-for-stats full tuition or higher scholarships; the academic scholarships are now listed as competitive, and the amounts do not cover the full out-of-state tuition.

    Looks like University of Arizona has scholarships that are a few hundred dollars short of full tuition. 4.0 HS GPA, 1450 SAT or 32 ACT gives $12,000 in-state (in-state tuition = $12,200) or $35,000 out-of-state (out-of-state tuition = $35,700).

    Arizona adds $5k/year and a one time foreign study subsidy for NMF’s.
  • Winky1Winky1 Registered User Posts: 686 Member
    Are the University of Arizona merit scholarships automatic for OOS students?
  • kcheveskcheves Registered User Posts: 156 Junior Member
    Yes, they are automatic. There is a calculator on the admissions site that will tell you what you are eligible for. For my D, admission to the honors college was also automatic.
