Selection Process

Students at O'Shaughnessy

The selection process is very competitive. About three percent (65 students) of enrolled first-year students receive merit aid. Selections for merit scholarships are made during the enrollment process. A completed application for admission is used to consider students for merit aid. 

To be eligible for consideration, a student must apply in either Restrictive Early Action with a complete application by November 1, or in Regular Decision with a complete application by January 1. There is no separate merit application required from students.

Students identified as merit scholar candidates will be contacted in late January with a request for additional information. Supplemental materials will be due in mid-February. Finalists will be notified of next steps.
