Emory College Scholars Program

The Emory College of Arts and Sciences offers membership in the Emory Scholars Program to incoming first-year students and to outstanding rising sophomores, and includes the Robert W. Woodruff, the Woodruff-Martin Luther King, and the George W. Jenkins Scholarships.

Individuals are selected based on exceptional academic success, evidence of the Emory Scholar qualities (Forceful and Unselfish Character, Creativity and Leadership, and Intellectual and Personal Vigor), a sincere interest in personal growth, and a commitment to investing their time, energy and talents to improve and enrich the lives of others through positive social change.

In addition to receiving a full merit scholarship, students in the Emory Scholars Program have access to programming and other opportunities that deepens their Emory experience both inside and outside of the classroom, including mentoring, specialized advising and support, organized activities and travel, and both alumni and faculty connections.
