Ball State’s Academic Recognition Scholarship qualifies eligible minority, out-of-state high school seniors who have maintained a 3.0 cumulative grade point average (on a 4.0 scale) for the equivalent of in-state tuition rates. This scholarship is worth more than $60,000 over the course of four years.
Students receiving this award are still responsible for paying the equivalent of in-state tuition rates and fees.
This scholarship is awarded for a maximum of eight semesters of undergraduate study (ten semesters for students in an undergraduate major that requires a fifth year to complete) at Ball State, and is renewable if your cumulative grade point average (GPA) is 2.0 or higher at the end of each academic year.
