“During Great Scott, I was able to hear from SUMMIT advisors and pre-health advisors and to learn about peer and major advising. Learning about these resources made me feel confident that I would be supported, not only as a student, but also as a new adult and budding professional if I attended Agnes Scott.”

What You Need to Know About The Great Scott Grant:

The Great Scott Grant is a $1,000 scholarship renewable for up to four years of study at Agnes Scott, with a total grant amount of no more than $4,000. Prospective students who attend at least ONE of three Virtual Great Scott events this fall, who also apply and are admitted to the college for the 2021-2022 academic year, will receive the Great Scott Grant listed on their financial aid package.
High school seniors, including international students and undocumented/DACA students, and transfer students are eligible to receive the grant as long as they attend one of the three open houses, apply and receive admission to the college for the 2021-2022 academic year.

No. High school freshmen, sophomores and juniors who attend one of the virtual Great Scott events this fall are not eligible to receive this grant upon their eventual application or admission to Agnes Scott. This grant has been created to acknowledge the very challenging application cycle that this year’s seniors and transfer students are facing. We will continue to think of creative ways to meet the needs of our students as we know more about future application cycles.

Additionally, students who decide to or who are already taking a Gap Year are not eligible for the Great Scott Grant.

Yes. Agnes Scott merit-based scholarships and need-based grants are stackable with one exception. The grant cannot be added to any full tuition, room, or board scholarships. To be considered for any need based aid, students must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), and make sure it is sent to Agnes Scott by using our school code: 001542.
There are three opportunities to attend a Virtual Great Scott this hall. If you have internet/power/technology issues on the day of the event you have chosen, we recommend rescheduling and trying to attend another open house. It’s best to view the event from a laptop or tablet so you can view all panelists and presenters, but there is also the option of calling into the event as a last resort. If you need to call into the event you will need to reach out to your admission counselor for further instructions.
