Academic Scholarships

Good Grades Earn You Money.

It takes hard work and perseverance to succeed academically. At Pacific University, we want to reward your achievements and make it possible to develop your talents even further.

Incoming students will automatically be considered for academic merit scholarships. These merit scholarships are up to $30,000 per year towards tuition and fees and are automatically renewed for all four years at Pacific University.

Incoming first-year students will be awarded on the basis of their overall academic profile. Learn about our 4-year graduation guarantee.

For transfer students, eligibility is based on college cumulative GPA and information submitted with the transfer application for admission.

The Net Price Calculator will help you discover how much you earned in an academic merit Scholarship and also give you an idea of what grants and loans for which you are eligible. This calculator does not consider any institutional Talent or Special Interest Awards or outside scholarships that you could earn.
