Beginning each Fall, students will be awarded institutional HU Excellence funds as part of financial aid packaging. When these funds are added to federal and state grant eligibility, you need only a minimal amount of self-help to cover full-time tuition.
HU Excellence Scholarships support incoming freshman with an Expected Family Contribution (EFC) of less than $14,956. The gap between EFC, Federal Pell Grant, Washington State Need Grant and a subsidized Stafford Direct Loan eligibility will be covered by the HU Excellence Scholarship.
This equity model of financial aid packaging allows you to begin your academic programs with predictable financial support and mitigate your need to borrow!
Continuing students will also be eligible for HU Excellence Scholarship funds. If you were receiving Heritage Pledge funds in previous years, you will continue to receive this support until you graduate or exhaust your eligibility.
We also encourage you to complete the Heritage University Academic Scholarship Application for consideration of other merit scholarships.
