Announcing the Copper Dome Scholarship Program, Effective Fall 2019


We have exciting news!  A new academic scholarship program, including the Copper Dome Scholarship, was recently announced at the annual Summer Scholars recruitment event. The new program is designed with what students, parents, faculty and others told us is important, including:

  • Test Optional Criteria
  • Superscoring
  • Stackable Awards
  • Progressive Values (Copper Dome and President’s Scholarship values increase every year)
  • Easier Renewal
  • Students keep the need-based aid they receive, including the Federal Pell Grant

The new program is available to new students enrolling in fall 2019 and beyond. For more details, view the fall 2019 scholarship program flyer at
