Scholarships are educational funds that do not require repayment; they are given for reasons such as academic success, community service or involvement, exemplary leadership and more.
Students are considered for academic merit awards based upon their cumulative GPA.
Please note: Thiel College offers Division III athletics, and therefore we do not award athletic scholarships.
Any student receiving a full-tuition award is not eligible for other institutional gift aid. Institutional scholarships may vary by year. For information on a specific graduating class, refer to the relative freshmen catalog.
Thiel has numerous awards supported by endowed funds established by the gift of a principal sum to the College. The Financial Aid office coordinates the awarding of these various awards, grants and scholarships to currently enrolled students based on the criteria specified by the donor. For complete descriptions, view the Academic Catalog (2021-2022).
Returning students can access the institutional aid scholarship application in the Thiel Hub under 'Campus Resources'.
