Kettering University Merit Scholarships for Incoming Domestic Freshmen Students
All admitted domestic freshmen are automatically considered for a merit scholarship.
Merit Scholarships are awarded to students based academic performance. Academic performance indicators used to assess merit awards include a combination of ACT and / or SAT scores, plus GPA. All accepted applicants are reviewed by the scholarship review committee. Merit Awards have a range of $2,000 - $15,000 / year.
Grade/Score Improvement: Kettering uses the cumulative GPA or a recomputed GPA (math, lab science, English only), whichever is higher. The highest subject matter scores on the ACT or SAT are calculated to award the merit scholarship. Kettering does not use the writing score on either the ACT or the SAT. Also, if your grades or ACT/SAT scores improve, Kettering reevaluates and adjusts your scholarship accordingly. All test scores and grades must be received by June 1, 2014.
Kettering University: An Affordable Education that Works! Wages earned as a result of co-op or an experiential learning experience can be used to off-set the cost of your education. On average, students earn $40,000 - $65,000 over the course of the program. Those dollars are above and beyond any merit scholarship, need-based-aid or other financial assistance you may receive.

Please note that all or portions of your Kettering Merit Scholarship may be underwritten by endowment funds given by generous friends of the University.
Final scholarship award packages will be determined from your official documents used in the admission and financial aid process.
