Kent State Trumbull Renews Automatic Scholarships for Qualifying High School Seniors

Kent State University at Trumbull has renewed campus scholarships for the 2018-2019 school year. Graduating high school seniors who apply and are admitted to Kent State University at Trumbull by May 1 and have a cumulative high school GPA of 3.0 or greater, will automatically be awarded one of the following scholarships:
Dean’s Scholarship                         $4,000/year                                                        3.8 GPA
Gold Scholarship                             $2,000/year                                                        3.6 GPA
Silver Scholarship                           $1,500/year                                                        3.3 GPA
Bronze Scholarship                         $1,000/year                                                        3.0 GPA
These scholarships can be combined with other privately funded and Honors scholarships. However, all require full-time enrollment at Kent State Trumbull for the 2018-2019 academic year (12 or more credit hours per semester). Yearly tuition at one of Kent State University’s regional campuses is $5,664.
“Because it covers more than three-fourths of my tuition, I can focus on school and not have to worry about whether or not I have the money to fund my education. In four years, I’ll start my career, debt-free,” said Jasmine Hickey, Dean’s Scholarship recipient and 2017 Bristol High School/Trumbull Career & Technical Center graduate.
These scholarships do not require a separate scholarship application. Students who are seeking additional scholarship opportunities should complete the Kent State Trumbull Scholarship Application, which is now available.  Interested students and parents are encouraged to apply early.
“This is a smart way to finance your future,” said Dr. Jim Ritter, Director, Enrollment Management & Student Services, Kent State Trumbull. “Many students are able to combine one of these scholarships with another and cover most if not all of the tuition for the first year.”
