Francis Marion Academic Distinction Scholarship

The Distinction Scholarship is a $1,000 scholarship that is automatically awarded to first-year students who have been accepted to Francis Marion University and have met our scholarship criteria. Awards will be made through March 15th for students planning to enroll at FMU for the Fall 2016 semester.

Scholarship Criteria:

  • Cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher
  • Have a combined Pre-March 2016 SAT Score (Critical Reading and Math) of 1100 or higher; combined New SAT Score (Evidence Based Reading & Writing and Math) of 1160 or higher; or a 24 or higher ACT Score

The Distinction Scholarship is renewable for 4 years by completing 30 semester hours a year and maintaining a 3.0 GPA.

Students awarded this scholarship are encouraged to apply for other scholarships through the Office of Admissions. If a student applies and receives one of the other scholarships, the Distinction Scholarship will be replaced and not awarded in addition to the other scholarship offered by the Office of Admissions.
