Marietta College is proud to recognize students' academic, extracurricular and leadership accomplishments and potential through a variety of scholarships. Our merit-based scholarships seek to recognize past accomplishments and future potential to propel a student's vitality in and contributions to our campus community.
The Pioneer Scholars Program encompasses the majority of our academic scholarships. Students applying by Monday, December 19th are automatically reviewed for our merit awards. (The Rickey Physics Scholarship and Talent Awards require additional application materials as determined by those departments.)
Marietta College also offers a number of other awards that speak to some of our traditions and particular connections to Marietta College. Marietta permits a student to receive up to two non-need-based awards with a total dollar value not to exceed the cost of full tuition.
