George Mason Merit Scholarships

Does GMU have any automatic merit based on GPA/SAT/ACT scores? I was very surprised at my dd’s minimal award ($2000 a year) when her sister received full tuition and fees from VCU for the same stats. Even with financial aid, our out of pocket is too high for us.

    My Son is now in his second semester. From my experience, GMU has a set system on how they award scholarships. Mason is the largest Public University in Virginia with over 37,000 students. So with a set amount of scholarship funds, they have to be strategic, with most of the funds going to out-of-state students to offset Out-of-State tuition cost. What's left over is divided out. My Son got a ton of scholarships from other schools, and he decided to attend Mason because of the degree program, proximity to DC, and Internship opportunities. I'm sure just about every parent has asked this same question. I sure did!
