Spelman Scholarships

The Office of Admissions awards a limited number of merit-based scholarships to new incoming first-year students. Recipients are selected from a competitive pool of students based on the academic profile and details she submitted in her application. The committee considers those who demonstrate strong academic performance and engagement in high school. This determination is based on the grade point average, standardized test scores, community service and leadership. To be considered, admitted students must have a minimum 1330 SAT or 31 ACT and 3.8 GPA (weighted). 

Please note, Spelman College has suspended the standardized testing requirement for students applying for the class of 2025. Therefore, all students with a minimum weighted GPA of a 3.8 or higher will be considered for merit scholarships with or without test scores.

Students who have been awarded a scholarship are notified at the time of admission. The details of the scholarship are included in the admitted student packet. Spelman does not require a separate application process for merit-based scholarship consideration nor do students have to request to be considered. The Bonner Scholarship is a need-based scholarship and will require a separate application for consideration. Admitted students who meet the minimum requirements will automatically be reviewed.
