Paul Tulane Awards are merit-based scholarships offered to incoming first-time freshmen applicants by the Office of Undergraduate Admission.
Typical recipients rank in the top 5 percent of the class, have a rigorous academic program with honors and advanced placement courses, and have an outstanding record of extracurricular activities and score near the top of the range in a college admission test. The scholarships cover full tuition and are renewable for four years (five years for students pursuing the five-year accredited professional program track in Architecture) provided the student maintains at least a 3.00 cumulative grade point average and continuous primary undergraduate enrollment in a Newcomb-Tulane College school.
Students may not receive a Paul Tulane Award in combination with any other Tulane merit scholarship, ROTC scholarship, Faculty-Staff Tuition Waiver or Tuition Exchange Scholarship. Students may combine the award with a partial athletic scholarship. Students offered a Paul Tulane Award may qualify for need-based aid. Students guilty of violations of the Code of Student Conduct or Code of Academic Conduct will forfeit all remaining portions of the Paul Tulane Award that they have been offered.
In order to be eligible for the Paul Tulane Award, you must submit your application for admission and all supporting documents as well as an application for the scholarship according to deadlines and criteria provided on the Tulane Undergraduate Admission website.
The scholarships are guaranteed to match the full-time tuition cost each year provided the student meets renewal criteria. See the merit scholarship renewal criteria page for more details.
