The Hays Memorial Scholarship Program seeks students with outstanding potential for intellectual vitality and academic success, whose records of achievement – both in and out of the classroom – predict leadership and initiative to enhance life at Hendrix and in the world beyond.
The Hays Scholarship, awarded to four entering students each year, provides full tuition, room, board, and mandatory fees for four years of study at Hendrix. Hays Scholars are also eligible to apply for special grants to support summer research and travel during their college years. Students who wish to compete for the Hays Scholarship must:
- be a senior in high school;
- achieve at least a 3.6 GPA in high school college preparatory classes; and
- score a minimum ACT "super score" composite of 32 or a minimum SAT Critical Reading and Math combined "super score" of 1410.
Additionally, students need to have completed an application for admission to Hendrix via the Common Application before applying for the Hays Scholarship. (Information about applying to Hendrix is available at www.hendrix.edu/Apply.) To qualify, the application for admission should have been submitted by our Early Action I deadline.
TO APPLY: The following Hays Scholarship application must be submitted by February 1, 2014. This application includes the submission of a personal statement that will help us understand the contribution you would make to Hendrix as a Hays Scholar. Finalists must also participate in an on-campus competition on March 8, 2014. Hays Scholars are announced in late March.
