The following information is about scholarships and discounts that are offered by the University.
These funds do not have to be paid back.
Merit scholarships are awarded on the basis of high school GPA and ACT/SAT national test scores (for SAT tests, combined Critical Reading and Math scores). No ACT/SAT residual score can be used to establish scholarship eligibility. In order to receive an offer of Merit scholarship money, the following forms must be submitted to the Office of Admissions:
The Trustees' Scholarship, which is our largest award, is $8,750 each semester or $500 per credit hour for courses taken during the summer semester or during two-week courses taken in January or August. The Trustees' Scholarship is awarded to incoming freshmen who have a minimum high school GPA of 3.50 and have a minimum national ACT composite score of 30 (1330 SAT; Critical Reading and Math scores ONLY). The Trustees' scholarship will be applied up to 126 hours, provided the student maintains a 3.4 college cumulative GPA which is reviewed at the end of every semester. The required forms (application for Admissions, 3-year transcript, and ACT/SAT test scores) must be submitted to the Office of Admissions.
Students receiving this award must be full-time and live in university housing or a lesser award will be given.
Students receiving this honor will receive the Trustees' scholarship. To receive this scholarship please send your official report to the Office of Admissions by March 1st. Students awarded this scholarship will maintain a 3.4 cumulative GPA that will be reviewed at the end of every semester. Students receiving this award must be full-time and live in university housing or a lesser award will be given.
The Honors Scholarship is stackable on top of the Trustees' Scholarship up to the total cost of FHU's Comprehensive charge ($21,500 for the 2016-2017 school year).
This scholarship is awarded based on a competition held each Fall semester which consists of a mock debate, personal interview, on-site essay, and interactive escape room. To be eligible to participate in the FHU Honors Scholarship Competition, students must:

For more information about the Honors Scholarship Competition, please email email@example.com or call 1-800-FHU-FHU1.
Endowed scholarships are available and awards are given based on criteria designated by the donor. All students are automatically considered for Endowed Scholarships. There is not an additional application process for these scholarships. Endowed Scholarships' purpose is to support merit awards and do not stack on top of merit awards. Amounts and recipients of these awards will not necessarily be the same from year to year. Some of the endowed scholarships are need-based as well. The Office of Student Financial Services will match students to endowed awards based on the criteria specified by the donor. To be eligible for the Endowed Scholarships, the FAFSA must be completed.
The Freed-Hardeman Associates is a women's organization designed to support and encourage Christian education at Freed-Hardeman University. As an endowed Scholarship, the FHU Associates' Scholarship's purpose is to support Merit Awards, so this scholarship does not stack on top of the Merit Awards. To apply for this scholarship an application needs to be completed. Please download and complete the application: Associates Endowed Scholarship Application & Criteria.
The Office of Financial Aid receives the list of possible recipients from Lads to Leaders headquarters usually in the spring semester of the students that have completed the Lads to Leaders Scholarship Application and have listed FHU as a top choice of college. The university will award the scholarship and notify the student of the award when they receive his/her financial aid award package. Financial aid award packages are sent out once the FAFSA is filed online at www.fafsa.ed.gov. Students must maintain a 2.5 GPA and it will be renewed at the end of every spring semester. Recipients must be enrolled full-time.
In addition to scholarships, the following four discounts are available from the University: Chester County Discount, Jackson Christian School Discount, K-12 Christian School Faculty/Staff Discount, and Christian College Faculty/Staff Discount. All discounts are limited to 126 hours of course work.

Awarded to students who are children of full-time Church of Christ pulpit or youth ministers. Full-time means a 40 hour per week paid position. Excludes those that are “vocational” ministers. Ministers must have been employed full-time as a minister at least five years prior to receiving the discount. The Christian Ministers Discount Form must be completed and signed by two elders of the respective congregation. The form must be submitted to the Office of Student Financial Services by July 1. Effective Fall 2015, new undergraduate (freshman or transfer, age 23 and younger) students will receive up to a $2,500 tuition discount per semester. Since FHU has no added fees as do other Christian universities, the discount may be combined with a Merit scholarship but may not exceed $8,750 per semester. The student must be full-time and live on-campus, meaning they live in University housing and participate in a meal plan. Graduate students are not eligible.
The FHU Promise program guarantees that, beginning Spring of 2016, qualified, first-time freshman and transfer students will not have to take out more than $9,500 in student loans per year. We will cover 100% of any financial aid gap for qualified, new students who are eligible for the PELL Grant.
The FHU Church Scholarship Match Program will match any scholarship awarded by a church of Christ to a first-time student (incoming freshman or transfer student) for the 2016 spring semester or the 2016 - 2017 academic year, up to a total of $2,500 a year.
To be eligible for this award, the student must meet the following criteria:
Be admitted to FHU as a new full-time freshman or transfer student living on-campus for spring or fall 2016.
Enroll in an undergraduate degree program.
Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), available at www.fafsa.gov, and have the results sent to FHU. If selected for Verification, the student must submit all required documents to the Student Financial Aid Office.
The church scholarship must be awarded as part of a bona fide scholarship program operated by the church (i.e., the scholarship should not be funded solely by the student or relatives of the student). Tuition payments by the student or the relatives of the student to a church with instructions to forward the funds to FHU or other "pass-through" arrangements are not eligible for a match.
The church scholarship must be awarded for the spring 2016 semester or the 2016 - 2017 academic year.
This award is applicable only to the comprehensive charge ($21,500 for 2016-2017). If a combination of this award and any other scholarship or discount exceeds the cost of the comprehensive charge at FHU (Henderson), this award may be reduced or cancelled. The maximum amount that a student can receive in the FHU Church Scholarship Match Award is $2,500. If a student receives more than $2,500 in church scholarships, the FHU Church Scholarship Match Award will not exceed $2,500.
This matching award is renewable for up to four years, and is subject to review and adjustment by the Office of Student Financial Services each year. The student must continue to receive a church scholarship equal to or greater than the matching award, take at least 12 hours each semester and maintain at least a 2.75 cumulative GPA during the first academic year, and at least a 3.0 cumulative GPA each year thereafter.
