All students admitted to the University Fellows Program receive a substantial scholarship that varies in amount, with University Fellows guaranteeing at least $16,000 and historically averaging at $18,500 per student. In order to be considered, students must submit the full University Fellows application by December 15. Only 7% of the entering freshmen class are awarded the high honor and distinction of becoming a University Fellow. Due to the nature of the scholarship, it is mutually exclusive with all other Samford scholarships, with the exception of Legacy and National Merit scholarships. Selection for the University Fellows scholarship involves the application process and an on campus interview. University Fellows must maintain a 3.00 cumulative grade point average on all coursework at Samford University.
