The Freshman Griffon Guarantee Scholarship is different from other scholarships. It starts with an initial award based only on your high school GPA (no ACT/SAT required), and it automatically renews and grows each year as long as you remain enrolled full-time and in good academic standing (2.0+ GPA).
Watch it grow
Freshman recipients receive their original scholarship plus an additional $1,000 when they earn 30 credit hours, an additional $500 at the 60-credit mark, and $500 more at the 90-credit mark. The upgrades are cumulative, so this means an additional $4,500 over eight semesters on top of your initial award.
Who is eligible?
Incoming freshmen with a high school GPA of at least 2.5 are eligible for the Griffon Guarantee Scholarship.
ACT and A+ Program Bonus
Students may qualify for a higher Griffon Guarantee award based on ACT/SAT score and Missouri A+ program certification:
- An additional $100 per ACT point (or equivalent SAT range) will be added to the GPA award starting with an ACT score of 20.
- Missouri A+ certified students will receive an additional $500. Additional A+ funding will be awarded for students with an ACT of 30 or higher.
