About Feature 1


Marietta College is proud to recognize students' academic, extracurricular and leadership accomplishments and potential through a variety of scholarships. Our merit-based scholarships seek to recognize past accomplishments and future potential to propel a student's vitality in and contributions to our campus community. A student must be enrolled full time in his/her first bachelor's degree program to be eligible. These funds are used for tuition only except for the McCoy Scholarship. Students must maintain a 3.0 cumulative grade point average to maintain the Scholarship.

Marietta College also offers a number of other awards that speak to some of our traditions and particular connections to Marietta College. Marietta permits a student to receive up to two non-need-based awards with a total dollar value not to exceed the cost of full tuition.
