Presidential Scholarship

The Wheaton College Presidential Scholarship is a merit-based award that recognizes incoming students for their high school academic achievement. All students are automatically considered for merit-based scholarships regardless of financial need. There is no special application required. When you apply to Wheaton College, you’ll automatically be considered. If eligible, the amount of your award will be included in your letter of acceptance.

The Presidential Scholarship is automatically renewed each year (up to the fourth year), as long as you remain in good academic and social standing according to Wheaton’s Honor Code.
