Scholarship and Discount Notes

The following scholarships/discounts for eligible applicants. There is space on the application to indicate if you are applying to receive any of these. If you don’t indicate that on the application it will not be assessed.

GDI Scholarship

A scholarship can be awarded for previous success and/or achievement in academic debate or students demonstrated financial need. To be considered for these scholarships students must submit a letter requesting an award making an argument why they should be awarded a scholarship. In addition students must submit a letter of recommendation from a coach or former lab leader (or parent’guardian if the request is based on financial circumstances). These scholarships range in value but the average award is about 10% of total cost of attendance. Please note that your scholarship request can only be processed once the supporting materials are received. Please email those documents to frappier@gonzaga.edu
