Baylor offers a substantial number of endowed need-based scholarships. The CSS Profile and Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) serve as the applications for these scholarships. Award amounts vary based on an evaluation of the student's need and merit. Renewal of these scholarships is contingent on the student maintaining financial need, full-time undergraduate enrollment status, and a minimum 2.5 cumulative Baylor GPA. There are many scholarships available to students who demonstrate financial need. These scholarships are awarded for the fall and spring semesters only.
Baylor Sibling Scholarship
Baylor awards sibling scholarships in the amount of $3,000 each on a first-come, first serve basis to undergraduate students who have one or more dependent siblings concurrently enrolled at Baylor (at least one must be an incoming freshman). Students must complete the CSS Profile and Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by the deadlines and demonstrate financial need. Each sibling must be admitted and subsequently enroll at Baylor. For consideration, please email email@example.com. Use "Sibling Scholarship" in the email subject line and include each sibling's name and Baylor student ID number (send one email per family). Renewal of this scholarship is contingent on the siblings maintaining financial need, full-time undergraduate enrollment status, and a minimum 2.5 cumulative Baylor GPA. Renewal eligibility ends when fewer than two siblings are enrolled as undergraduates at Baylor.
