Will I be eligible for Kent State scholarships if I will have a faculty/staff/dependent Tuition Waiver Benefit?

Many Kent State scholarships can be applied only to tuition instructional and general fees.  Therefore, if the student will use a Tuition Waiver Benefit, these types of scholarships will be cancelled.  Affected scholarships include, but are not limited to, the following incoming freshman and incoming transfer student scholarships awarded by Admissions, Student Financial Aid and the Honors College:

  • Academic Achievement Award
  • Founders Scholarship
  • Honors Distinction Award
  • Oscar Richie Memorial Scholarship
  • President Achievement Award
  • Transfer2Kent Scholarship
  • Transfer in a Flash Scholarship

If cancelled due to a Tuition Waiver Benefit, these awards will NOT be replaced with funding to be used towards living expenses, books, or other educational-related expenses.
