Merit Scholarships

Medaille believes in rewarding students for their academic performance in high school and challenges them to have the same commitment to academic excellence once they become part of the Medaille family. Medaille is pleased to offer, on a competitive basis, merit scholarships to both freshmen and transfers.

Medaille College Merit Scholarships are determined at time of acceptance to the College. No special application is required, so make sure your application materials are as comprehensive as possible.  


First-time freshmen are eligible to receive competitive, merit-based Medaille scholarships determined by their high school performance. The Medaille College Trustee Scholarship is awarded based on a combination of your high school GPA and SAT or ACT scores. The levels range from $13,500-22,000 and are awarded for up to four years of continuous, full time undergraduate study.

Transfer students are reviewed for Medaille College's transfer awards based on a combination of your cumulative GPA from all colleges attended and the number of transferable credits that have been completed. The Medaille College Transfer Award ranges from $9,000-$17,000.

Members of Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society will be awarded an additional $2,500 annually.

Alumni Referral Scholarships

We encourage alumni to share their experience and love for Medaille College by nominating a first-time freshman or transfer student. Alumni must complete our Alumni Referral Scholarship Form prior to the start of the student’s first semester of classes. Nominations will be accepted until the maximum number of scholarships are awarded.

Say Yes to Education Scholarships

Medaille College is a proud partner with the Say Yes to Education organization. Through this partnership, tuition scholarships and grants are available to eligible students from Buffalo, Syracuse and Philadelphia public schools. Visit or contact your admissions counselor to see if you qualify.
